Restore Windows 8 Graphical Boot Menu

Post by sjj1805 » Tue Jan 06, 2015 2:26 am

Open an elevated command prompt inside Windows 8
There run the following command:

Code: Select all

bcdboot C:\Windows
(C should be the letter for your Windows 8, change it if it's not)

That command will replace the boot files with the ones from Windows 8, set the Windows 8 menu entry as the default one and set the parameters in the BCD to the default ones hence next time you reboot you'll see the graphical menu.
