    How to disable the "Windows Boot Manager"

    How to disable the "Windows Boot Manager" Boot Menu in windows 8.1


    I accidentally pressed "Reset BCD configuration" on PC A, in the Backup/Repair section of EasyBCD ...( first time running it...uhh ), resulting in "Windows 8.1" being deleted from the Boot Menu
    I made a restore (from the identical PC B)

    Now however, "Windows Boot Manager" (DOS) starts each time, asking to "Choose an operating system to start , or press tab to select a tool"
    I don't want to have this choice, since I only run 1 OS (w8.1) and would like the boot to automatically start the OS (as it does on PC B)

    I have compared the F2 & F12 boot sections of PC A and PC B, but I can't find any differences

    I tried to restore the previous image of PC A, however MR tells me "Windows PE : Automatic boot - Not available in the free edition"

    How can I prevent PC A to enter the "Windows Boot Manager/Startup Options" and just continue with the w8.1 boot ?
