    1. Do you mean:
    BEFORE - system booted to Win 8 directly
    NOW - boot menu is displayed ?

    2. Can you post output of this command: (on admin console)
    bcdedit /enum all /v >bcdedit.txt
    and attach the file "bcdedit.txt" created by command above.

    If you are happy leave it as it is.

    In {bootmgr} you can have:
    'timeout' 0 => set to 10 or 15
    'displaybootmenu' yes => either delete or set it to no.

    If not familiar with bcdedit you could use Visual BCD Editor.

    You should never get a boot menu - neither text style, nor metro style - as there is only one entry in 'displayorder'.

    Hello Andreya, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    As Boyans posted above, it's the "displaybootmenu" entry that is causing this.

    From your specific bcdedit.txt file above, you can run either command below in an elevated command prompt to stop this.

    (Just to set it to no)
    bcdedit /set {9dea862c-5cdd-4e70-acc1-f32b344d4795} displaybootmenu No

    (removes the value)
    bcdedit /deletevalue {9dea862c-5cdd-4e70-acc1-f32b344d4795} displaybootmenu


    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    I think, in his second post #3, he has achieved what he wanted. Not easy to read though.
