Somehow Windows installed Windows Boot Manager after I altered my "boot from devices" order in my bios.

The two options displayed in Boot Manager are:
-Windows Setup
-Windows 8

-when I choose Windows Setup, I get a screen filled with three error messages:


  • \windows.~bt\windows\system32\winload.efi
  • Status 0xC0000428
  • The digital signature for this file could not be verified

How can I get rid of the "Windows Setup" ~option~ in Windows Boot Manager?

I want to keep Windows Boot Manager, BTW, because I plan to install dual-boot Win7 later.

Used a Win8 recovery disk and tried the following commands in the Command Prompt option:

  • bootrec /fixmbr
  • bootrec /fixboot
  • bootrec /rebuildBCD

...with no changes/help resulting.
