    new boot options-boot options info


    Even after restoring EFI partition to original after upgrading to 8.1, I have two boot options to boot into into windows.
    1)Windows boot manager
    2)OS from hard drive.
    Both boot into windows.
    Why this happened.
    Any help, Please?

    Second option, I listed, OS from hard drive is new option.
    BCDEdit shows only one option, that is first option. ie windows boot manager.
    From where the second option comes. Is it from new recovery partition created by windows 8.1? I wanted now how this occurs.

    There are quite a few things in addition to the normal BCD store. The references to the WinPE and Multiboot along with the entries below. Are you saying you did not add those?

    Maybe these are from an OEM configuration..
