    Can't change windows 10 boot drive?

    If you're regularly dual-booting between W10 and something else, keep it turned off. If you're mostly on W10 or only on W10 (no multi-boot) keep it turned on, but be aware of what it's actually doing. Windows 8 (or 10) boot problems ? Please read this before posting

    BCD problem HELP

    This is a peer to peer forum. Ignore the "staff" appellation. That's just an artefact of the forum software. We're all just globally dispersed users, some of whom ( <.001%) volunteer answers to posed questions. As someone who's answered a few, I was given moderator status a while back, but I'm...

    Computer Only Boots If Both Hard-Drives Are Connected At Same Time

    EasyBCD is not an active part of your system. It does nothing during boot (or any other time, unless you start it and ask it to add, delete or modify something in your BCD) Uninstalling it will make absolutely no difference to your PC (except give you back the small bit of space it was occupying...

    Making HD bootable with BCD

    If the host PC is not UEFI, you should remove the active flag from the boot partition before starting your install. The install should then go to your target HDD (make that partition active first) When the install is complete, remember to put the active flag back where it was (and leave the new...

    Can't change windows 10 boot drive?

    Is this a Dell PC ? For some reason, probably because they assume their customers are stupid, they won't allow a reordering of the boot sequence. (there is one other OEM which also does this but I can't remember which one) The only workaround is a physical swap of the data cables between the drives.

    Can't change windows 10 boot drive?

    Can you post a screenshot of what you mean. When you say "change the boot drive" do you mean Changing the Boot Partition ? If so that is merely copying boot files from one partition to another without altering or removing the originals. It will have no effect unless you also alter the BIOS boot...

    Win10/Win7 dual boot with ASRock H110M and AMI UEFI legal BIOS

    EasyBCD is saying that D is the EasyBCD boot device (not the boot device). A subtle distinction. Look in "view settings" (detailed mode) for the "true" boot device. In overview mode that's telling you that EasyBCD has made necessary boot file copies into that address at some time. (My PC also...

    Win7 DVD installation and repair having ASRock motherboards

    Don't chose "Install" In the bottom left of the screen should be "Repair Your Computer". Choose that and on the next screen "Startup Repair"

    Win10/Win7 dual boot with ASRock H110M and AMI UEFI legal BIOS

    The Windows\boot folders are irrelevant. They don't get used during boot. It's just where the setup gets the boot files from when you're installing the OS. The "live" boot files are in the efi system partition (for a UEFI PC) or in the partition marked "system" in Disk Management (for a BIOS/MBR...

    Dual boot Windows 10 pro and Kubuntu 18.04

    If Kubuntu wants to overwrite your whole disk, then don't use it is all I can say. Why would you want to install an OS with so little self control ? I think you may be doing something wrong but, as I already said, I haven't used any flavour of Linux for 5 years or more, and I won't (can't) offer...

    Dual boot Windows 10 pro and Kubuntu 18.04

    I said in a previous post. You either need to install Linux on a separate drive (the safest and easiest option if your PC has a spare slot and you can afford a cheap small SSD), or if that's not an option, you need to create space by shrinking the size of Windows (or any other partition on the...
