Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

Q: Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

Hello, I'm at a loss and afraid I've lost all my files. Every time I restarted my computer I kept getting the Windows Boot Manager error message: Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data. However, after googling and trying numerous methods to repair this, I now keep getting prompted with the Windows Recovery Manager. I assumed that choosing the default factory restore option would prompt me with a back up option, but it didn't and proceeded to reformat. I quickly shut my computer down. I don't know what to do next because now all I get is the Windows Recovery Manager option. Any help would be much appreciated!

Preferred Solution: Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

If this string of events actually did start to reformat the drive, it might still be recoverable. I would boot the computer to an independent OS IE: Linux Live on a CD or DVD and then look at the drive. Then use that to copy your data to another drive. Once the data is saved, then do whatever you want with this corrupted drive. Do not try to continue with any other operations until the data is saved elsewhere.Since this PC came with Vista, once the data is saved, you could try the HP REcovery Manager to restore the original OS. Or just start over this a new install of windows 7

A:Solved: Windows 7 Toshiba A505 Windows Boot Manager and Recovery Media failed

Wow! 180 views and so much assistance. Thank you, all.

Sorry, not meaning to sound sarcastic, I just expected a bit of help; even if it was to tell me I had been idiotic screwed it up myself and may as well throw the laptop away!

Regardless, I am only replying today to say that I believe the problem has resolved itself. I was able to use an image of Windows XP to place drivers and an OS on the hard drive. From there I was able to use the Recovery Discs afforementioned, which have now worked and I have Win7 back up and running. It wasn't as simple as I just made it sound because I don't really understand how I have fixed it, but fixed it I have.

A:Windows 7 Boot Manager issue

I did this
"right click computer select properties

select advanced

under startup and recovery select settings

uncheck "time to display list of operating systems" or reduce the seconds to 0"

and this
"That's only hiding the problem. You need to remove the old dual boot OS entry using EasyBCD 2.0 "Edit Boot Menu" - highlight old OS, Delete, Save, Restart."

and problem is solved. Though there is an extra 10-15 second lag during start-up.

I made a recovery/repair DVD and booted up from it. It located my Windows OS on drive C:. Then it gave me a strange menu: Recovery disk Repair Windows Boot Manager Add startup option: Windows Recovery Environment (repaired) These were my only choices. I could not get to the Recovery Console or other menu without accepting the repair. Right now, nothing is broken. Windows boots normally every day. I am afraid if I let the new disk make a "repair," it may really give me a problem. What to do? Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. I had not made a repair disk before because I had installed Acronis backup, which prevented it. It was only yesterday that I found the registry edits needed after uninstalling Acronis so that Windows Backup would run.

A:Recovery disk says Repair Windows Boot Manager but OS is booting fine

I wouldn't be afraid of running an offered Repair, and would probably after reboot go back to run a couple more Startup Repairs to see if it finds anything else. It isn't going to harm anything and may find more to correct as it already has.

You can also post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image which will tell us if it's correctly configured.

First - I'm no computer whiz which is why I am posting here - hoping you gurus can guide me through a fix via 'baby-steps ' Ok I put a new hard drive in a Dell Precision Workstation It apparently had some sort of Raid ADHD probably have those initials messed up but it kind of accidentally OS's 2 - issue Manager installed Boot Windows describes the way I'm feeling It has two hard drives The new hard drive is the OS Boot drive It was a tb drive so I thought I might experiment and partition it down into two smaller drives - thinking that the bootable portion might boot faster if the drive was smaller plus - thinking the other drive could act as an additional storage drive that Windows Boot Manager issue - accidentally installed 2 OS's wouldn't bog down the Boot Drive Partition Is that thinking flawed Anyway I tried putting XP back on and I kept getting this error saying that 'Cannot find a drive' something to that effect So I got into the Bios and changed the type of Raid to a different one and eventually it seemed that it might work XP installed but everything was jack-screwed in that the video drivers weren't there etc etc So I thought I'm going to stick in my Windows upgrade which I was saving for another computer and see if I can just boot off that disk wipe off the other OS and maybe the newer Windows would work Well it DID work Only problem is I discovered that now I get the Windows Boot Manager everytime I boot the computer and it wants me to decide between quot Windows or a Previous Installation quot I select 'Windows ' and it boots just fine but this doesn't seem right to me and I want to get rid of the Boot Manager and just have Windows boot up I dug around a bit and discovered I SOMEHOW slap to the forehead installed Windows XP onto the nd partitioned portion of my new drive I went to that drive letter and 'deleted' the 'windows' folder But I still get the Windows Boot Manager popping up upon startup Can you tell me in very detailed steps an ignorant person like me can understand how to get this fixed I also see in my Bios Settup 'BOOT SEQUENCE' that both my hard drives are listed under the CD Rom drive as 'Add-in Hard Drive' and then to the right of each of those it says Not present What does that mean The computer seems to boot and run fine but shouldn't the drives be listed by the Drive Manufacturer's name and capacity Thanks for your help

A:Error recovery and boot manager screens

I'm not sure if this'll work (but it won't hurt).
Start up Startup Repair again, and select "Command Prompt" in the Advanced options dialog.

Type "sfc.exe /scannow" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
See if it runs and let us know what it says.

If it doesn't fix the problem (you still can't boot into Windows), then try the System Restore option in Startup Repair and set it back to a date before this error started happening.

Let us know how it works out.

Hi, and welcome to the forums. You have a corrupt boot loader. Now easy way is to use a Vista DVD and boot from it and run startup repair(vista will often do this automatically for you). You don't have one I know (always insist on a copy of the OS even if they want more for it). Good thing is to do this ANY copy of Vista will work so see if you can borrow one. If not you can go here, this company has made the Vista repair utility available to download. Read all the instructions so you understand what to do.

Win7 cannot be installed to a USB drive.

Borrow or buy a $5 USB flash stick, write the ISO to it using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works when others don't.

Wipe the HD while in external caddy using Diskpart Clean Command.

Reinstall the HD internally, enter BIOS setup to set the HD to boot first.

Trigger USB stick to boot using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen - it may be listed under HD's, removable or USB, expand listing if necessary. It might autostart for a wiped HD.

Hey guys, trying to install Win 7 Ultimate x64 on my roommates laptop. It was having severe issues booting into 7 already so I decided to just wipe it and re-install. I started with a DVD copy and upon boot he realized that his DVD drive was broke. FML. But we can boot from USB so I go buy a large flashdrive and DL a copy of W7 and make it boot-able. So I plug it in and when it starts to load windows files it makes it about 10% and stops.

Then throws an error 0xc00000e9

A:Vista won't load - Windows Boot Manager Error

After a couple more hours of reading, I came across an article that has solved my problem, It told me that Ineeded a recovery DVD to reinstall the winload.exe file. This is common from everywhere that i have read, what wasn't so common was where i could get my hands on a copy, now, tonight at 2am on a Saturday morning, until I read another article on a different website hidden away on the forth or fifth page. It told me to goto Systemdiscs where i could download an .iso of the recovery disc which was 120Mb in size. They also do recovery discs for Windows 7 & Vista both 32 and 64 bit. I downloaded the disc, burnt it using Active ISO Burner and put it in the drive.Mod Edit: Removed links posted, see my following post ~ Hamluis.I started the laptop, and it booted from the DVD, where it asked me to select my language settings and then took me to a menu.The first option on the menu asked if I wanted to fix start up problems, which naturally I did, so I clicked it.That was it, it did it's bit, then told me to restart the computer, and hey presto it started first time. I have now successfully restarted the laptop 8-10 times now and it restarts perfectly every time.So that's it, it cost $9.75 to download, and has saved me lots of ear ache from my girls (and the ex)I've used this site before, so I thought as I have found my own solution, I should share it with everyone else. The moral that I have learnt is to make sure I keep the discs that come with a new PC SAFE, and then no doubt I could have saved myself a lot of time.However in the end it was a good exercise, and I have expanded my knowledge at little bit further

A:Help! error 'windows boot manager, boot failed!

Sure sounds like your hard drive may be failing or your boot sector is corrupted. However, since your laptop is only 5 months old, I assume it is still under warranty. With that said, I would recommend that you work this issue through Lenovo support so they can identify the source, authorize a factory service call (if covered), and/or authorize the shipment of any replacement parts (if required). Good luck.

I've installed Win 7 on my Laptop. But when I launch (without booting from Bootable USB), it gives me an error:
File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Status: 0xc0000428
Info: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.

The problem is when I boot from my Bootable USB it acts normal. Like nothing is wrong. It's just normal Windows 7 like I'm used to.

I searched on other topics but it seems that everyone issue is fixed by using the bootrec using the bootable DVD. Although I can't access that since I'm using an USB AND when I boot using my USB it's acting normal.

Good evening everyone So I got a new ASUS tablet for Christmas The OS was Windows but it kept telling me to update to Windows or else I wasn't able to download any apps or so To do that I had to look for updates with Windows Update first When all the updates were ready to go I went to the Store and tranfered Windows Then it told ASUS Manager, error in missing files Windows Tablet Boot me to reboot So I did And when I do that the thing tells me that Windows Boot Manager, missing files error in ASUS Tablet there's some kind of Windows Boot Manager, missing files error in ASUS Tablet error I wasn't able to do a system restore or a repair or a recovery or what so ever Nothing worked So I did what everyone does in such a situation I went online and looked for a solution I came across this site Fixing the Windows Bootloader via the setup DVD I followed its' instructions but I must have done something wrong On quot attempt three quot on the link I couldn't manage to find that C Boot he talks about It kept telling me that it couldn't find the patch So I thought quot maybe it's something else quot and I took the patch from the quot Windows Boot Manager quot thing that appeared somewhere and I must have done something or deleted something when following the instructions and now there is no way I can get it to work Can someone pleaaaase help me I'm usually pretty handy with technology but I've never worked with tablets and I personaly dislike Windows Thank you so much for yout time and attention Atached there is a pdf with a scan of the message that I come across everytime I turn that tablet on I can't get passed it

A:Windows Boot Manager, missing files error in ASUS Tablet

The error message appears to say that it can't find \Windows\System32\winload.exe
It's most likely one of the following:
- missing from the disk
- the BCD entry is misconfigured
- there may be disk problems (hardware)

Are you able to access the System Repair menu?
Can you get into a Command Prompt?

If not, then I'd have to suggest resetting the system to it's factory state.
If unable to do that, then I'd request recovery media from Asus to restore it

If it's still within the return policy period, you may just want to return it and avoid all of the hassles.

Good luck!

I just bought my computer and it came with Windows 8.1 installed.  I reserved Windows 10 so I will receive the upgrade when that OS becomes available.  I want to create a recovery set, but if I use HP Recovery Manager now to create the set it will have Windows 8.1.  Can I wait a couple of weeks and then create recovery disks after I have Windows 10?

Recovery partiton contains windows 8.1 - It will create only recovery of windows 8.1 even if you install Windows 10 or 8 or 7.The windows 10 copy that you will get is from microsoft and not HP and its if you ever need to re-install, you will have to install windows 8.1 and then perform the upgrade again. You can also download the win10 ISO and burn it to a disc or create a bootable USB Flash Drive to install from and use your microsoft account to activate win10.

A:How can i get back HP Recovery Manager for Windows 10

Greetings, Your request is impossible to fulfill. HP ships Recovery Manager only for the version of Windows installed on your PC at the factory. You will have to use Microsoft's Reset option to reimage your PC. You can use the Backup and Recovery option in Control panel to create a system image and a repair disc (CD or DVD). You can also go to this site to download the Win 10 .ISO which can be used to boot to the Windows Recovery Environment. Win RE will give you restore, reimage, and other troubleshooting options when you cannot boot to Win 10. The HP Win 8.1 recovery partition can be eliminated. TomP

A:Regarding Upgrading to windows 10 and Hp recovery manager

Varadar Let me try to answer your Win10 questions ...1) NO -- Upgrade does not invalidate the warranty, but neither does it extend it.2) NO -- recovery manager will no longer work because the files it needs are preinstalled on your PC from the factory. Not only are those only for Win8.1, but the Win10 upgrade has a nasty habbit of corrupting OEM recovery information, preventing any HP recovery from working after the Upgrade.3-1) NO -- you will NOT be able to do a factory reset after the Win10 Upgrade for the reasons mentioned in 2) above, plus the Win10 Upgrade does NOT install the files needed for a factory reset --as those come only from HP.3-2) NO -- Don't bother with these -- better alternative described below4-1) Same as 3-2, above4-2) Yes -- see below regarding image backup5) Yes, see 1) for warranty question response Unfortunately, the Win10 GoBack function has been demonstrated to be unreliable, so when folks try to rollback to an earlier OS, when it does not work, it can leave the machine in a corrupted state, such that only a full factory reset from HP Recovery Media will get it back to a working condition, and not only do you have to purchase that media, you end up losing all your data, settings, and applications in the process.However, you can protect yourself from upgrade and recovery problems if, BEFORE you do the Upgrade, you consider using a third-party imaging/restoration application like Macrium Reflect to image off your machine so you can easily restore it if anything doesn't work. Macrium Reflect (MR) provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or entire drives.What I recommend is the following:1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR)2) Run MR and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB stick3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CDI use this all the time and it typically takes less than 10 minutes to do the image backup and about the same time or less to do a restore.  Plus, MR has the option to Add a Recovery Boot Menu entry.  This allows you then to boot into WinRE, and you can then use that to do a restore -- when you can't boot into Windows! Add this menu item AFTER you do the Win10 Upgrade.NOW, you have the means to restore a full working system from the external drive or USB stick in only a few minutes.Have fun experimenting with Win10! Good LuckI am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.========================================================================If you feel my suggestions helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks!If they helped resolve your issue, please click "Accept As Solution" to help others find similar information.

Is there a Backup and Recovery Manager for Win 7? I liked the backup and recovery manager that was available on my Vista when I bought this laptop but is now unavailable because of the upgrade!!

A:Problem configuring Windows using HP Recovery Manager

Obviously running factory Recovery from partition without making Recovery Disks as a backup or backing up your files is not advisable and borders on recklessness.

Try entering Device manager during install to uninstall Devices showing in error (likely Display) so install will complete, then update the driver from desktop.

You can copy out your files to external HD using the Win7 Installation DVD or System Repair Disk via this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console, or use Paragon Rescue CD.

Then you can either order HP Recovery Disks from Tech Support, or clean reinstall using a Win7 Installation DVD which is a much superior install without the corrupting HP bloatware, using the Product Key on COA sticker: Reinstalling Windows 7

Hello all,

I am been trying to fix an issue on my girlfriend's computer. Ever since I removed a malware infection she had, the computer was doing the following: taskbar turns grey and internet stops working. Thinking this was still a malware issue, I posted in that section of the website (see link below). I have since been cleared of malware, but we have determined that the issue is related to the Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager and WLAN AutoConfig, both of which are set to start to automatically start when booting, but seem to be crashing. My taskbar goes back to normal and the internet works once I manually start these services.

Not sure if this is related to the driver, but I'm having an issue with the Windows Desktop Manager and Windows Aero.

When I start my computer up, Windows Aero flickers off after about a minute or so, it eventually comes back and stays but I'd like to stop this from happening. When it goes off I use the Aero troubleshooting feature and diagnosis what the problem is. The report says that the Desktop Windows Manager was disable, However I get no prompt of that occurring, and when I checked the the DWM it is set to automatic. As said Aero eventually returns after a few minutes or so, though it's obviously strange that it goes off in the first place with no warning of the DWM being disable or re-enabled. Any help is appreciated.

Hi all,

I followed some instructions to remove the Windows 8 Dual Boot by just deleting the Windows 8 Partition and that there was no need to edit the boot menu as everything will be done automatically after restart.

Now, when I tried to reboot my computer, the computer hangs at the screen where you are suppose to select to boot up Windows 7 or Windows 8.

As I had deleted Windows 8 Already, it should not prompt me to select to boot Windows 8 but rather directly boot into Windows 7.

How should I proceed from here ? I am currently installing Fedora Dual Boot on my laptop so hopefully I am able to do some salvaging from there....

Thanks in advance !

Warmest Regards,

I have an Inspiron 7520 and uninstalled and reinstalled the new version of Dell Backup and Recovery Manager -- upgraded to premium to make sure that I would have full ability to use the program. Note: the old version didn't work at all -- hung up on backup, etc.
I have rebooted.
When I try and open the Manager interface, I can't. All I get is the clock logo with the hand spinning. I cannot set the destination. I cannot select what I want to back up. I've tried this several times and just get the spinning clock which I end up ending through Task Manager. 
I have tried opening the Manager from the installed link on desktop, from my list of programs, from the Start menu, and from the tray icon. Nothing works.
Any suggestions?

A:Windows 8 Dell Backup and Recovery Manager doesn't work

I have the same issue with the non premium version, I made the mistake of upgrading to v1.0.0.4 that is available for download and now have the same spinning clock, the program never loads so can't do anything with it. I have tried twice now to uninstall and then reinstall but still the same issue with spinning clock.
This is on a brand new XPS 8500 running windows 8. The reason I tried upgrading is that the version I had would not create recovery disk on usb key (would take forever to see the usb key and then would fail with pretty much useless error message before writing anything to the usb key, all it would do is format it to something that could no longer be read by windows.

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

It instructs me to insert the windows installation disc, restart, and run "repair your computer".  However, I did not receive an installation disc, only a utilities disk (which does not boot)
What do I do now?

1. Reseat the hard disk drives, reseat the controller and monitor. 2. Perform chkdsk /r on the RAID volume. 3. Run diagnostics on the hard disk drives and controller and replace as necessary.

A:Cant boot into HP Recovery Manager with F11, its booting int...

ActorVMI Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about restoring Win8.1 on your PC and wanted to help. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the Win10 Upgrade is know, in some cases, to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine.  This pretty much guarantees that no HP Recovery is going to work.What will work is restoring your machine to its original factory condition using HP Recovery Media.This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are:  and Luck

A:Recovery Manager Doesn't Boot

Hi Danny,

To use the Recovery Partition, you need HP Recovery Manager installed on the main drive (in effect, Vista must be installed with this program included and it may work even if Vista isn't booting as long as it is installed with the HP Recovery Manager software as well - but that's not the case here): Here's information about it: Recover Windows Vista Operating System Using HP Recovery Compaq Presario C700 CTO Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English). I don't believe F11 will work without it. NOTE: There were MANY options for Compaq Presario C700, so be sure I chose the right one before you do anything - it is important to get the precise model exactly correct.

A regular Vista disk is not going to work for this because it doesn't include the HP Recovery Manager software. But it should restore Vista and you should be able to download updated drivers from the HP website assuming mostly everything works with the default drivers from the Vista disk (but not the supplemental software that came with the recovery disks including the HP Recovery Manager software). Then you need to activate with the original product code for the system (which should be on a label somewhere on it).

If that isn't satisfactory or doesn't work (and it should for the most part even if some aspects will not be able to be restored like the HP Recovery Manager or the ability to use the Recovery Partition), at this point, since you didn't make recovery disks when you got the machine, I believe you need to get Vista Recovery Disks from HP to do the restore to factory conditions. Here's how to do that: Order Recovery Discs for Windows 7, Vista, or XP Compaq Presario C700 CTO Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English). NOTE: There were MANY options for Compaq Presario C700, so be sure I chose the right one before you do anything - it is important to get the precise model exactly correct.

I wish I had better news, but that's unfortunately how it seems to work with these computers.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

I'm running on Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit and I have always used the same user when registering the OS and it's my administraor account of course. I'm playing many 32-bit games on my laptop and sometimes I experience random crashes which forces me to open the Task Manager and end the process. The strange thing is, when I'm trying to end the process it doesn't end, it's still running taking up CPU memory.

It basicly refuses to quit. I've tried to end the processtree and using the taskkill command but it just tells me Acces Denied when trying to use it. What is all this about, I'm the administrator and it doesn't let me end my own processes or using certain commands in cmd...

Hi, Before trying the suggestion below, make sure you have backed-up all your personal files etc. If you have created your set of Recovery DVDs, you could use these to reinstall the operating system as this process will also re-create the Recovery Partition and so hopefully regain the f11 functionality. Regards, DP-K

I have two drives A GB SSD containing the windows Boot Windows Manager system A TB HDD partitioned into three Following a failed system restore I was unable to boot into windows Windows Boot Manager and had to use the windows recovery disc To cut Windows Boot Manager a long story short I ended up with two Windows Operating Systems the original in the SSD and a quot recovery quot one in a partition in the HDD I eventually ended up with a PC that would boot into the original O S but only after selecting an OS via the Windows Boot Manager page which appeared during the boot sequence I deleted the quot recovery quot OS from the HDD partition but the Windows Boot Manager page still halted the boot sequence and required a OS choice Using msconfig System Configuration Boot Tab and even though I had deleted the OS from the Z partition I had the following Windows Z Windows Default OS Windows C Windows Current OS I made the Windows C Windows the default OS but the Windows Boot Manager page still appears for a couple of seconds However the boot sequence now carries on to load windows normally If I delete Windows Z Windows from the System Configuration Boot Tab menu will the Windows Boot Manager disappear Having got a nearly working system back I do not want any more boot problems

If Z is no longer being used then you can Delete it in msconfig/Boot.

I had Vista on my computer originally. I installed Windows 7 recently and now I get the Windows Boot Manager. My choices in the Boot Manager are either Windows 7 or Vista. If I choose the Vista option it will still bring me to Windows 7. Is there a way I can get rid of this? In Disk Managment it shows that I only have one partition.

Hello Ktstearns, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can use the tutorial below to remove the Vista entry in Windows Boot Manager through msconfig.

Hope this helps,

This question involves an annoyance not an operational problem. When I boot up the computer, I get a screen titled "Windows Boot Manager" and I can either wait a few seconds or hit enter for the windows boot. I only have Win7 on my computer and not another OS. This just recently started. I did a search for Boot Manager and got no results. How can I get rid of the screen and be able to boot directly into Win7?

What are the options it gives you on the screen?

Recently, I've had a change in my boot up. After I get the BIOS screen, I get a 1 or 2 second screen that says that it cannot detect the C: drive. Then I get a screen that lasts for 20 seconds titled Windows Boot Manager. The Windows 7 item is highlited and if I press enter or wait the 20 seconds, Windows loads. All my apps work with no problem. It's more of a mild concern that it is of a problem. Any suggestions on what is causing this or how to get rid of it?

Hi, I have win 10 pro installed on a Samsung 850 pro SSD. In Bios it lists Windows Boot Manager as the #1 option. I selected Samsung ssd as my #1 option, saved and exited. Computer will not boot. Says No OS found-insert media and restart. Did that a couple times. No Boot. Set Bios back to Windows Boot Manager. Everything runs fine. Also Sata controller set to AHCI. Is this normal for Windows 10? In Device manager my storage controller says Microsoft storage space controller. Is this normal for Win 10? Thanks

Welcome to TenForums, Mike.

It certainly sounds normal if you are booting UEFI to a disk with GPT partitioning.

Try executing "msinfo32" from a command prompt and report what it says on the line "BIOS Mode".

I am currently applying a .wim (Windows 7) to a machine and am planning to do this to another 50.

I have applied my image (.wim) and ran 'bcdboot c:\Windows /s c:' to include the boot entry otherwise it will error upon booting.

Now this is where I have a problem, if I re run the above, when it boots it displays windows boot manager asks which OS to load, due to the additional boot entry.

Is there a way clear all entry's in the boot manager via a command?

BCDEDIT.exe is very well to clear a single entry after specifying the identifier but not feasible do to the automation.

A:Windows Boot Manager

Go into msconfig>Boot and delete the extra entry.

If not there, install EasyBCD to delete the extra entry on Edit Boot Menu tab, the modern way.

i7 Processor
6 gigs RAM
WIN 10 Home Premium

Bought this system, took it home, and carved out a new partition, for a Win 8.1 Pro installation (dual boot). Checked BIOS, found primary=Windows boot Manager, secondary-Optical. Changed boot order, and successfully installed the WIN 8.1 Pro OS on 8.1 partition. Went back into BIOS and reset boot order to the Windows boot manager. Now when I reboot, I can?t see the Windows boot loader screen. I know it?s there because even though I get a black screen, I can use my arrow keys to boot either the WIN 10 OS, or the WIN 8.1 pro.
1. Have checked each OS, Control Panel>System> System Properties>Startup and Recovery, and in each OS, it shows BOTH operating systems. Have check box set to 90 seconds, to display list of operating systems.
2. Turned off Fast Boot in each OS, and BIOS.

As usual any help is appreciated.

I have a system running XP. I partitioned my drive in half and installed Windows 7. I tried to start XP again and messed it up. I think it's trying to use XPs boot manager. Do I need to re-install 7 to use it's boot manager?

Now that I know this .iso works great, I want to put 7 on a partition on my main Vista system. I can't afford to lose everything like I did on the XP system. When I tried to start XP after installing 7 I got an error. "windows root system32 hal.dll is missing or corrupt"

I can't have that happening to my main system. Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? Will it happen to Vista? Thanks for any advice.

P.S. Windows 7 build 7048-0-090219-1845 is VERY nice and runs good with 512MB of ram!

Hello again Nate.

I have already answered you to the other post. Now, if Windows 7 starts, then its not using XP boot manager, but the Windows 7 one. (Otherwise Windows 7 wouldn't start).

I installed Windows 7 on an optiplex 330. The install was fine, but now whenever I boot the computer the Windows Boot Manager opens and asks me to choose an operating system. This is not a dual-boot configuration, I want it to boot to Windows 7 all the time. How can I get the computer to boot to Windows 7 without pausing at the boot manager?

I downloaded the Windows 7 beta a week or two ago and want to try it out. I am running Windows XP now and do not want to uninsall it for a beta of anything.

It has been years since I dual booted anything and am having a hard time remembering how to set up a boot manager.

At the time, I used the one in Partition Magic but now, I umderstand that it will not work with NTFS partions. It was very easy to set up and that is all I remember about it.

An article I read recently said that Windows XP has a boot manager and it sounds like it should do the job but I cannot find instructions telling a way to install it before or after installing Windows 7.

I have created a partition for the beta but have not tried installing it.

Has anyone here used the XP boot manager?

I'd suggest putting w7 on its own HDD rather than take a chance it's mess up a perfectly good XP system .. When you have to remove it.

I have re-installed windows vista on my machine and when i boot up it shows 2 vista installations... How do I get rid of the original so that it boots into vista without the boot manager message ?

A:windows boot manager

First figure out which one it is then open msconfig by using the search in the start menu and go into the boot tab and delete the one that is not needed. Also make sure you check make permanent.
