    No more EasyBCD for you!!! Now you see why I don't trust any "system utility" that was not written for the OS by Microsoft until the OS has been released a while -- except Winternals because Mark Russinovich is a God. I think if you follow post #36 again you'll be fine. Microsoft has made most of the boot stuff idempotent.

    Will do. Startup Repair "Attempting Repairs" now for about 10 minutes. Gotta let that play out.

    I wonder now if I would have ever gotten the 7-style Boot Menu if I hadn't added 8 originally using EasyBCD. Looks like we'll need new tools here for these special operations.

    Maybe if I'd made 8 System then it would have knitted 7 into a Dual Boot on it's own with the improved WinRe.

    If it can adjust to new hardware I can't wait to see what else it can do. Looks like line commands will still play a part though.

    I just found it. Posted it to Mahmoud straightaway - so you are the second to know.

    So simple.

    Bootems Yes = text menu

    Bootems No = UI menu

    Easybcd works just fine - it is using win7 bcdedit.exe from the easybcd bin folder.

    e.g.

    bcdedit /set {emssettings} bootems "Yes"

    As a command line switch to bcdedit or is this a new exe in 8? Who's Mahmoud ?

    Mahmoud is CEO of neosmart technologies - they make easybcd.


    bcdedit /set {emssettings} bootems "Yes"

    or

    bcdedit /set {emssettings} bootems "No"

    Those are the emergency management parameters.

    8 seems to use them to decide on the boot menu style.

    Well aren't we connected No offence to Mahmoud and kudos to him for participating. He's got to concur with me regarding Russinovich then

    Try those commands and check they work for you.

    I just did it half a dozen times.

    I don't know your thoughts on uncle Mark?

    OH - ok I just spotted your earlier post - that's nice - I am sure he will be pleased.

    Startup Repair found nothing to repair.

    I'm running the Commands in #36 again now.

    Can you translate those into line commands, Si, in case I can't get my 8 Boot Menu GUI back which changing 8 to System got me earlier, but which using Easy to edit listings apparently just lost me? I'm now starting to the 7-style Dual Boot menu GUI.

    And yes, Si, I have no WinRe on F8.

    The text menu is a FEATURE! Uncle Mark? I didn't know there was a family link Honestly I haven't been completely in the Microsoft ecosystem directly since I wrote the DOS version of Schedule+ for them years ago.

    Boot from a Windows 8 install DVD and shift+F10 for a command prompt. What's a "line command" vs. a command line?
