    OS menu often not shown.

    Thanks for the info. Yes, I want a minimum of 2 bootable drives. And probably no more than the minimum because it seems the more I have, and the more operating system installations I have, the more troubles I have. I read somewhere that Microsoft was aware that some computers needed to be...

    OS menu often not shown.

    Can anyone explain this.

    OS menu often not shown.

    Thanks. It is interesting that the Microsoft menu with the tiles doesn't display after a restart, only a power on. The text menu does display after a restart. When testing, the "tile" menu is a real pain because I have to cycle power to get it. The text display menu only requires a restart...

    OS menu often not shown.

    I've been investigating the OS menus when using Secure Boot and TPM. There are several problems, but there is one that is the big problem. The OS menu will often become not shown at the slightest provocation. One way that causes it to be a no show is changing the default OS. That can be...

    Secure Boot stuff obviously buggy.

    Actually the problems are not with W11 per se. It's Secure Boot and TPM. I have the same problems with the OS menu when using W10. The .iso I download from Microsoft is Win10. I sometimes later do an upgrade to W11 beta. This version of W11 seems to work well.

    Secure Boot stuff obviously buggy.

    Congratulations. So there are at least two people on earth with our eyes open. :blush: Microsoft caters to the rest of humanity. The only way I know how to install Windows on a Secure Boot/TPM computer is with an .iso Microsoft puts on a USB flash drive. When using that to install the OS...

    Secure Boot stuff obviously buggy.

    Thanks for the reply. I learned long ago to disable hibernate. I've been multibooting for many years with Win10 and Win7 without problems. I never use fast boot. I'm now booting Win11 and Win10 with Secure Boot and TPM and there are obvious bugs somewhere. I think whenever a Secure Boot...

    Secure Boot stuff obviously buggy.

    I'm experimenting with my new motherboard with Secure Boot and TPM. I have several bootable drives. I use EasyBCD. Sometimes I get the OS menu screen and sometimes I don't. Either way, the situation doesn't change unless I change something. It could be as simple as changing the default...

    With UEFI and GPT , can EasyBCD access the BCD on other disks?

    So can EasyBCD access the BCD in the current EFI System Partition? Is it somehow accessible when it is live? It can't be just the missing partition letter. We could also refer to the desired EFI System Partition by the "Drive number" and partition number.

    Me too

    I downloaded the creator lite, and the ISO, and paid for them. The USB flash disk does not boot. I tried different SD cards, different card readers and different computers. I notice when I plug it into this old MBR computer, the USB flash device is listed in the bootable list as "SCSI 0 LUN...

    With UEFI and GPT , can EasyBCD access the BCD on other disks?

    It apparently can access the BCD on it's own disk.

    Should I be able to have more than one Windows installed on a new UEFI/GPT computer?

    Thanks. I forgot about that fast startup thing. I ran into that thing 10 years ago when I was running Windows 7 and also checking out Windows 10.

    Should I be able to have more than one Windows installed on a new UEFI/GPT computer?

    On my old BIOS/MBR computers I have multiple drives and multiple Windows installations on each drive. But now, I just built a "modern" computer with an ASRock UEFI/GPT motherboard and multiple drives and I got problems. When I install one Windows 10, it seems to run fine. When I install...

    Windows 10 occasional startup glitch. Maybe a multiboot problem.

    Thanks for all the encouragement and advice. Don't worry about me. I've been playing with Windows for almost 20 years. Notice I made sure I still have Win7 after installing Win10. Viva la EasyBCD!

    Windows 10 occasional startup glitch. Maybe a multiboot problem.

    "I think I did follow instructions for Win10. No mention of fast start. There is no hiberfil.sys on my C drive either. No problem running Win7 after running Win10. I think my problem lies elsewhere. Maybe an incompatible driver. As this is an in-place upgrade from Win7, that could be a...

    Windows 10 occasional startup glitch. Maybe a multiboot problem.

    Thanks for the reply. I don't think I got an e-mail notifying me of a reply. I disable hibernate with the "powercfg -h off" command. This seems to remove all mention of "fast start" from the control panel power options windows. I'm still wondering when I am about to install Win10 on a drive...

    Windows 10 occasional startup glitch. Maybe a multiboot problem.

    When installing Windows 10 and I don't unplug my other drives first (which have Windows 7 installed), does the Windows 10 installation do something different (and disgusting IMHO) for the sake of the equally disgusting fast startup, that it wouldn't do if I had remembered to unplug the other...

    Windows 8 and EasyBCD

    Well, better late than never, I guess. ;) I don't know if you guys have figured out the reboot or not. In case you haven't, I will explain. Unless you have disabled hibernate, the shutdown button on Win8 and Win10 doesn't do a classic shutdown. It only shuts down the programs. It...

    adding win 8 to easybcd 2.2

    I hope you excuse me for replying to an old thread. I disagree that Vista/7 would have done the same. If you use FAT it would, but NTFS is a "journaling" file system. It keeps a running log of changes to the hard drive so if Windows crashes, a reboot very rarely needs to do a checkdisk. In...
