    help with boot manager


    I installed windows 8 from a bootable partition containing the files, after the installation I get an screen to boot the OS or the windows 8 installation, I checked the boot manager and this is what I have

    Windows Boot Manager
    --------------------
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume6
    description Windows Boot Manager
    locale en-US
    inherit {globalsettings}
    integrityservices Enable
    default {current}
    resumeobject {d83e2461-3627-11e2-b0f9-efb109b9309a}
    displayorder {current}
    {7619dcc9-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
    timeout 30

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier {current}
    device partition=C:
    path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description Windows 8
    locale en-US
    inherit {bootloadersettings}
    recoverysequence {d83e2463-3627-11e2-b0f9-efb109b9309a}

    osdevice partition=C:
    systemroot \Windows
    resumeobject {d83e2461-3627-11e2-b0f9-efb109b9309a}
    nx OptIn

    systemroot \windows
    bootmenupolicy Standard
    detecthal Yes
    winpe Yes
    ems No


    what i want is to boot normally, without having the multiple boot screen, the partition where my windows 8 installation files are, is SET as active

    I just want everything(bcdedit) to look as if I installed windows 8 from a cd-rom

    please help, this maybe easy to fix


    I had win7 installed, I found out how to installe Win8 without CD or USB, by creating a partition, setting it as active, and put there the win8 files, then with command prompt I type boosect /n60 (letter of partion win8 files), restarted my pc, the installation screen appeared, I installed Win8 where Win7 was, after all that, I get a screen with multiple choice to boot the OS or Windows setup, the partition where my win8 files are is ACTIVE, not where the OS is which is C:, but still I can boot the OS and no problem

    this what i Have:


    Windows Boot Manager
    --------------------
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume6

    locale en-US
    inherit {globalsettings}

    bootmenupolicy Standard
    detecthal Yes
    winpe Yes
    ems No

    I just want to boot normally, without the multiple screen choice and delete the Windows Setup entry, bascially I want it to look as if I installed from a CD-ROM

    here what I feared to fix, I just want to look like If I installed win8 from a CD-ROM
    Windows Boot Manager
    --------------------
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume6
