Metro Style OS Selection screen


New Member
I have my PC set to dual-boot Win 7 and Win 8.1. It was showing a metro-style screen for OS selection.

I have somehow reverted to the older Windows 7 (and pre-) text based OS selection screen.

You can supposedly get the metro-style back by issuing this command:

bceedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard

I've also tried "current" between the braces. Neither gets my metro-style selector back.

Further, typing JUST bcdedit shows that bootmenupolicy has been set to standard.

SO...... Anyone know what may be wrong, and why it may not be working?
