    Dualboot bootmenu not graphical


    Hi there. On one of my PCs, I am dualbooting Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I'd like the bootmenu to be graphical, but it is just text style. Win 8.1 is set as the default OS, and the entry bootmenupolicy is set to 'standard'. It still doesn't work. What am I missing? Thanks for giving me any additional clue.

EDIT 3: Use nvidia 302.80 Windows 8 drivers. Appears to be fixed with using them. Anyone else having graphical anomalies using Firefox? It's tricky to explain but graphics go a little odd on Firefox's toolbars (and mostly just the toolbars) Got an Nvidia GT 430 with the "8" drivers...
Graphical boot menu gone in Performance & Maintenance
Hi there. I am trying my best to get the graphical boot menu back, the one in blue. All I have is the text version, of black and white. I have followed the tutorial 5245-startup-options. Done it twice, with no success. Settings show all according to the tutorial: default is 'current', identifier is...
