Windows Boot Manager Problem

#1
Windows Boot Manager has been loading everytime I start my computer and I can't seem to fix it with any of the solutions I've found online. It also waits for input everytime and doesn't continue to load.



I've tried the following:
- control panel > system > advanced > startup and recovery > settings
I've unticked both options underneath system startup
- done the whole bcdedit wipe and rebuild from bootrec
- used EasyBCD and rewrote the MBR
- tried to delete and rewrite the individual entries using this guide:

Here is what my boot settings are currently:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit

Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier {bootmgr}
device partition=C:
description Windows Boot Manager
locale en-US
default {current}
resumeobject {current}
displayorder {current}
timeout 10

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {current}
device partition=C:
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Windows 7
locale en-US
recoverysequence {current}
recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=C:
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {c3a35bc6-243d-11df-956f-806e6f6e6963}
nx OptIn

Anyone have any ideas?

Using EasyBCD 2.0 latest build (1.7 doesn't contain W7 support), try Diagnostics/ Reset BCD
If that doesn't work, try Diagnostics/Recreate boot files.

I tried both of those methods but it didn't help. I also thought I'd set the timeout to 3 and just live with the problem but that also didn't work, the system still waited for input.

My boot now looks like this:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]

C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit

Did you try "Reset BCD" with the *very latest* version of EasyBCD 2.0? What build number does it say under Help | About?

Yeah, it's something I'm thinking about right now.

Actually, there's a whole new EasyBCD design I'm working on - I shall send you a link as soon as I've got something tangible and look forward to your feedback, Justin. :smile:
