    1) Open an elevated command prompt.

    2) Copy and paste the exact command below, and press Enter.

    bcdedit /set {bde632ee-3bf6-11e3-bf8c-f04da23a9f18} Description "Windows 8.1 Pro"


    3) Check back in msconfig to make sure that you have "Windows 8.1 Pro" for your OS name now instead.
    Thanks Brink. You have done it again. You should be on $Microsofts payroll.

    Finally got around to doing this, worked like a charm. I did set to just 10 seconds which is plenty for me. Thanks Brink for all your tutorials here. Obvious a lot of effort has been put into them.

    adding safe mode for windows 8, 8.1 in complex multiboot


    Regarding the tutorial Safe Mode - Add to Windows Boot Manager in Windows 8 how should I modify this to add safe mode for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 in my complex windows multiboot system? Specifically I have six entries on my MS (EasyBCD) boot loader as follows: WinXP, Vista x86, Vista x64, Win7, Win8, Win8.1 with XP presently set as default.

    Hello Arch,

    You should be able to use the tutorial as is to add Safe Mode for the Windows 8 and 8.1.

    Be sure to use the correct identifier number for the W8 and W8.1 when adding a safe mode for each.

    At step 4, you can use any description you like, so you could use “Windows 8 Safe Mode” for one and “Windows 8.1 Safe Mode” for the other if you like.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    The two entries were added to the boot menu list but the Windows 8 Safe Mode loaded Windows 7 Normal Mode and the Windows 8.1 Safe Mode loaded Windows 8.1 normal mode. BTW, I don't know if it matters, but I am also using EasyBCD. I don't know what the d means in the command lines. Any further help would be much appreciated.

    I changed the drive letter in EasyBCD for the Safe Mode for Windows 8 to correspond with the drive letter for Windows 8 rather than Windows 7 and that got me into Windows 8 instead of 7. The only problem now is that it is not going into safe mode. Did I miss something in the commands?
