    Build 14383 changed my regular Win 10 to read Win 8 on triple boot


    I have a triple boot system, Win 10 Pro, Win 7 and Win 10 Insider.

    The latest insider build, 14383, changed my Win 10 pro listing on the boot menu to "Win 8 Pro". I had to use bcdedit to change it back to Win 10 Pro.

    My operational Win 10 Pro was an upgrade installation from Win 8 Pro.

    Yeah - there is something odd going here - I had labelled my multiboot to differentiate between versions and it reset them to just win 10, when I installed it - had to use bcededit as well.

    Been like that forever....it's a PITA, but doesn't hurt anything except your blood pressure! I'm just used to firing up a CMD prompt and copy/paste bcdedit /set {current} description "Windows 10 Insider"

    Posting that so anyone else reading this would know how. Assumes you are booted to the OS you want to change name on Boot Menu. Call it anything you like inside the quotes. Can be verified with MSCONFIG.

    I use easybcd as you can change all of them at same time.

    OK...I responded the way I did because you said you used bcdedit. Guess I misunderstood.

    I booted using a USB Flash Drive with an iso for an insider version. Selected Repair your computer, Advanced and finally command prompt. Enter bootrec /rebuildbcd and it corrected mine.
