Paragon HD Manager Boot Management?

Q: Paragon HD Manager Boot Management?

Hi,

currently using Paragon HD Manager 2010 Pro and i'm curious about the Boot Manager feature that it has.

I currently have Ubuntu 10.10 x64 dual booted with my Windows 7 X64. I installed Windows 7 first, then ubuntu.

When i boot up my computer it uses GRUB which is the loader for Ubuntu, and i can select Windows 7 from this menu.

What i want to know is, will paragon boot manager basically do the same thing for me? I know GRUB is doing this for me, but when i update the kernel in ubuntu it adds un-needed entries at boot which is tacky and ugly and i dont like it and i'm nervous about configuring GRUB =)

I have my machine backed up so if i mess anything up, i'm safe. I figured i'd post my question here to see if i can avoid restoring from backup or maybe get some insight that will blow me away and make me feel stupid. -Fingers Crossed.-

A: Paragon HD Manager Boot Management?

I would rather install graphic interface for GRUB2.

I migrated my Win 7 OS from my 'C' drive to a OCZ Vertex 4 256Gb SSD. No problems, everything works fine.

But recently I was in 'Disk Management' and couldn't make sense of what I was seeing:my SSD was showing as drive 'H' with a capacity of 931Gb!

Depending on which tool I use, I get slightly different reports (Belarc: Disk Management: CrystalDiskInfo)

Anyone ever had similar confusion? and what did you do?

Probably doesn't help that when I reuse old hard disks, I usually leave Windows on them.

As I say, everything is working fine, but clearly there is some confusion around and I don't like that.

I want my reporting software to give me accurate information.

Can you post a screenshot of your Disk Management? Follow this tutorial

Also, if you are booting from your SSD then it is the drive C.
Maybe the drive H is the old hard drive?

Hi Guys,
I have just used Paragon HD Manager v.6 to resize my partition on a WinXP machine and I have lost some space on the C: drive.

The setup was:
C: drive 24GB
D: drive 56gb

What I did was:
- Reduced in size the D: drive to 20gb, and dragged to increase C: drive the remaining space between the two partitions. Now the D: drive is 20gb, however the C: drive is in a mess, I still only have 2gb of space available, Paragon and System manager report partion as 55GB, however Windows explorer reports it as still 24gb with only 2gb free space.

How do I recover the space I just created? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
Cabalino

I was running the defragment function on my primary partition, which runs before windows starts up, and I accidentally shut off my laptop.

Now, when I try to reboot, I get the usual "Toshiba" screen, but it never gets to the loading windows screen.

Been trying to hit F8 to boot into safemode, but to no avail. Can I never access windows again?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It doesn't "officially" support 7 - but I have no trouble running using it on 7 x64. The partitioning rules for Vista and 7 are the same.

The bit that doesn't recognize 7 - therefore won't add it in - is the bcd corrector - which is in the boot corrector module on the bootdisc. You are not likely to use that anyhow.

I?ve already seen Paragon was giving Partition Manager Pro for free for a short while. I?ve downloaded and installed it successfully. Those who missed that day, can get it till October 25.
Here is the link: Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 As I can understand, they?ve just opened freeware downloads page. And sometimes commercial software will appear there for free. Very friendly I think for me it?s just like I earn 80 bucks for nothing (professional version of Partition Manager 10 costs $79.95)

So, what do we have here (taken from Partition Manager 10 site, but it works for 9.5):
Advanced Partitioning Operations: Enlarge NTFS partitions without rebooting Windows or interrupting your work, repartition hard disks without data loss, redistribute free space between partitions, merge two partitions to one etc.
Apple? BootCamp Support: Redistribute unused space between Mac? OS X and Windows partitions (great for me!)
Initial Backup Facility
Safe Defragmentation Mode
Etc.
Full feature list is here . The difference is that 9.5 doesn?t support Windows 7.
The program runs on Windows 2000, XP and Vista (32 or 64 bit).
And Paragon provides user support only for the promo period. And only on Twitter . No WinPE included.
You will need to input your email on registration page to get a free serial ? that is your only payment for the soft.

A:Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 Professional Free download

The difference is that 9.5 doesn’t support Windows 7.



Actually - they don't claim it - but it does support Windows 7.

I have been using for a while on my 7 x64 - it works perfectly.

It is exactly the same build as the PM10

The only you don't get - is the WinPE disc and Adaptive restore feature. Run off the bootable Linux/dos cd from within the program to get it in bootable form.

Terriffic opportunity to get a great piece of software - Paragon are the best in Hard Disk Management.

Hi, I?m about to commite suicide so I just wanted to make a final query before I do it.

I have a 320 GB western digital HD, it has windows 7 (x64) in one partition and data in the other.
I used paragon partiton manager to redistribute the free space (don?t ask me why didn?t I use the W7 features please). It did, but the partition with all the data was "not formatted". It showed the exact used and free space (so no data loss) but I couldn?t have acces to it. I manged to convert it to NTFS... still showed the right used and free space, but no luck having acces to the files.

So I used the W7 function to check the disk... and after it finishes it the partition with the data is empty, the OS partition is intact, but the other one is empty.

I tried everything, so I?m not actually asking for a solution, my question is:
Given the fact that I haven?t erased the partition or deteled it or have done anything other than redistribute the free space... will a professional HD recovery be able to restore the filesystem or the files?

Thanks in advance.

A:EMpty partition after redistributing free space with paragon manager

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD which has helped with hundreds of complicated partitioning operations here without a single failure. Partition Wizard

First from the Wizards tab, run Partition Recovery Wizard to see what it finds. When you identify the lost partition by size and space usage, tick the box next to it and restore it.

If this fails, use the Data Recovery Wizard or Recuva data Recovery software.

In the future, always keep your files backed up externally and ask here for exact steps to repartition or "redistribute free space" (whatever that means).

Now I have a recovery OS of Vista that I boot from but before I even get to that screen I am bothered by the boot menu that doesn't load Vista. I keep getting a 15 second timer that keeps starting over. I end up loading the 2nd option which is the recovery which takes me to Windows Boot Menu where I select the Vista (recovery) option to boot. Any help fixing this?

I've already tried deactivating the boot menu feature inside Paragon's software and uninstalling the entire software, this menu still loads with my PC

Gday

I have emailed Paragon and am awaiting there reply, but you guys seem to know a lot more and try and solve the problem

Up to this point I have used either Acronis or Paragon for my backups, I prefer Paragon over Acronis, mainly because the restore by Paragon is far quicker.

I have both bootable CD's, but in this instance I would like to concentrate on Paragon.

I downloaded Paragon's Advanced Recovery CD. 2009 Build 6730. Put it in my rom and booted ....... looked at a black screen for 10 minutes. Removed it and rebooted, it got stuck at the loading of Vista, then I got another black screen no hard drive movement.

Rebooted again, this time with the regular Paragon bootable CD. It booted into the recovery console.

Now this is where things go from bad to worse. I tried finding my OS, after a lengthy period I received an error disk 2 i/o fault!!! ....... no operating system found.

Now disk 2 is my external hard drive where my backups are kept.

So I rebooted with the CD in, went into the recovery console and clicked on "safe restore", after playing the waiting game I get a message disk 2 i/o fault!!!.

Took out the Paragon CD, put in the Vista one, tried a repair, but there was no OS to repair .

So I installed Vista, and because I didn't want to have to reinstall all of my programs again (yer lazy I know, but that's what backup's are for).

Checked with the fresh install, that my two external hard drives, had there drivers and were present. They were ... Read more

Ok here is a question that probably doesn't need to be asked and probably doesn't have a satisfactory answer:

I save a little time by using the "Search" box to access Drives and Devices. So why is it "Device manager" and "Drive management"? Why can't it be "Drive Manager" and "Device Management"? Wouldn't it be logical to be "Device Manager" and "Drive Manager"? or "Device Management" and "Drive Management"?

Never mind.

hi guys,
i have a friend who got hold of an IBM Thinkpad that was a bit broken. he sent it off to get fixed and they replaced the HD. i said i would have a look at the old drive 2 see if i could salvage any of it using my ide adaptor. it starts of promisingly and is recognised by the BIOS and by the device manager as a HD but the Disk management cant see it. im running XP Pro and an ASUS P4S800 board it was plugged into IDE 2 on its own so shouldnt conflict.
is the drive totaly lost? its 60GB so could be worth it. the model number is DK23FB-60.

Hello all,
I have a Crucial 64gb SSD labeled as the D: drive. It is not the primary drive. IT keeps disappearing from windows. When it does I can not see it in device manager or disk management.

So I disconnected and reconnected it to a different port on the motherboard and restarted the computer and It showed up again and worked fine.

While I was backing up my Lightroom catalog to that drive, my computer froze and D: was gone again. So I connected it to a different port, restarted the computer and now it is showing up again. I fear it is only a matter of time before this happens again.
I tried CrystalDiskInfo and the drive doesn't show up there.

Edit:

It has failed again, this time I wasn't using the drive for anything. Windows Explorer stopped working so I restarted the computer and the drive is not showing in explorer, device manager, or disk management.

Hello,

It sounds like the drive maybe faulty. Crucial do have an SSD Drive Utility which will test it for you. - Sorry, I cant send you a link as the site is down for maintenance atm.

I'd also check to see what PSU you have installed. It maybe underpowered for the amount of devices you have in your PC. However this is uncommon.

Likely a faulty HDD. If the drive was working properly, it would be properly recognized and identified by the BIOS. If the BIOS can't see it properly there is a fault.

We've been able to isolate some of the problems to ACER touch screen itself not being compatible with the USB power management feature built in to Windows.

$hubs = Get-WmiObject Win32_USBHub
$powerMgmt = Get-WmiObject MSPower_DeviceEnable -Namespace root\wmi | where {$_.InstanceName.Contains($hubs.PNPDeviceID)}

foreach ($p in $powerMgmt)

}

This same script however doesn't work for Windows8.  Any one know how to modify the script above to make it work on Windows8??

Hello,

This is a four-partition UEFI boot on a GPT drive. EFI files are residing on a second partition of disk 0 (the ESP partition) in the EFI folder. The boot virtual disk is residing on the fourth partition of that disk 0.

the boot menu, Windows 8 starts to boot without difficulties.

Hi, first time poster,

I got hit with a BSOD 1a Memory Management out of the blue last night. I tried to re-start Windows in every mode possible, but it would crash with the same BSOD every time I would try to log-in.

I also tried running a Ubuntu live USB on the CPU, but that too crashed before it could load. As a result, I have no way of accessing the hard drive and getting error logs to post on here. I believe it is a hardware problem, does anyone have a solution of what I should do next?

I suggest you start by checking ram. To check the ram, download memtest (http://www.memtest.org/). Burn it to a cd using a dedicated .iso burning utility (http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm), make sure the cd drive is at the top of the boot order in bios, then boot to the newly created cd and run the utility.

I have installed a new hard drive and installed a new XP Pro on it. I kept the old XP Home for some time untill I'm happy with the new installation. The old XP Home was on drive C and the new XP Pro is on drive E. I am now ready to reclaim drive C disk space and tried formatting it. However, it appers as the "system" drive, while the new HD (E) appears as "boot". I realized I wont be able to format it until I make E drive system and boot together (which usually appears as "system"). Eventually, I would prefer that the new disk will be labeled C.

I've searched the web for some answers, but couldn't find exactly what I need. I found a solution for changing the system drive to be also a boot drive (http://www.dcr.net/~w-clayton/Changing the system partition.htm), but not the other way around. Some people claim that boot drive must be always drive C, but this sounds wrong.

In regards to changing system/boot drive letters, Microsoft provides a solution, but strongly discourages doing it except for the case of restoting it to it's value at installation time (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223188).

I'll appreciate any insights.

A:XP Disk Management - boot/system drives

Whats happened it that Windows always has a reliance on drive C: for containing the MBR (master boot record). You'll find if you try and remove the drive, Windows will no longer boot even though it's installed on the drive still in the machine.

You can probably format the drive using a boot disk and then using the Windows recovery console to fix the MBR and boot.ini.

It's going to cause a lot of problems changing the drive letter however. You can probably change the drive letters and it may even boot, but you'll have major headaches with installed apps and other system things that it wouldn't be worth it.

I have recently bought new RAM and since I have some BSOD at cold boot. After the first BSOD, the computer is stable but the first boot (cold) will always fail.
I have done the Windows Memory Management succesfully but not MemTest yet.
I am sure both tests will fail on cold boot but I did not try yet.

Here are my specifications :
i7-860 (no OC)
Asus P7P55D
AD3U1600W4G11-2 [DDR3 PC3-12800 4GB]

As wrotten on the manual of my motherboard, I placed the RAM on the blue slots. I have also tested just one RAM and I had the same BSOD.

For the voltage, I tried the default setting Auto for the RAM then I tried to set it to 1.5V and 1.55V(according to the RAM manual, it should be 1.5V) without any success. I read about memory timing but I am not sure to understand how to set it correctly. Except theses changes, my BIOS uses default values and I have updated it to the latest version.

I wonder why it only happens on cold boot. Is there something I can do about it ? The RAM is not listed on the supported RAM in the manual because it is an old motherboard, is it a compability problem ?

Hi, I really need some help here.

My system has two drives:
1) SSD (C: drive) where my win7 OS boots from (call this normal_win7)
2) HDD (D: drive) where I keep my data

I created a D:\virtual_win7.vhd file and installed win7 on it (for testing purposes) following these instructions:

Virtual Hard Drive VHD File - Create and Start with at Boot

When I boot, I get no boot menu asking me to choose either between normal_win7 or virtual_win7 install. By default, it boots into virtual_win7. To boot into normal_win7, I need to press F11 at reboot to enter into Boot Menu and select it. I thought I would be presented with a boot menu at reboot each time? Those instructions I followed in the link told me the boot manager would be present. So I got a feeling something went wrong somewhere.

These are some things I observed:

1. I installed EasyBCD within normal_win7 and it only has one entry listed in the bootloader:


HTML Code:
Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
2. Within System > Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Startup and Recovery, there is also only one entry.

3. In Disk Management (within normal_win7), the vhd does not appear.

Questions:

What do I need to do to get the boot menu manager going when I reboot my system to allow OS selection?

Why doesn't the vhd appear in Disk Management within normal_win7? Is it because it is being dynamically mounted each time it is booted into? I thought th... Read more

this is what I did, since I have no CD-ROM, to install Win7 I created a partion X: NTFS and set it as the ACTIVE ONE, the put there the Windows 7 installation files, and opened prompt command to type bootsect.exe /n60 X: , next I restarted my computer, and automatically it booted into the Windows 7 setup, I installed Windows 7 on the partition C: and formatted the partition C:, everything installed and after the installation finished, a multiple choice menu appears that reads:
Windows 7

I believe my error was not to set partition C: back as the active one, during the installation process where it asks you in which partition to install, I just formatted C: but forgot to set it as the ACTIVE ONE

I used to have a W7 system in IDE, MBR and since I had to reinstall everything from sratch, I decided to set my drives to AHCI, UEFI/GPT. After install, I checked the BIOS settings and saw that in my Boot Options I had the "Windows Boot Manager" set as #1, my SSD set as #2 and DVD drive as #3.
 
When I change the boot priority and set my SSD as #1, my computer won't boot and asks for a bootable device although the system is install on my SSD. I don't have a multiboot system, there's only W7 present so why do I have a "Windows Boot Manager" in my BIOS? I thought it was only for multi boot systems so I don't get why it's showing up here.
 
When I go to msconfig, startup, there's only one system displayed (W7).
 
Since I'm new to AHCI/GPT, I don't know what's normal and what's not. If it's not normal, how come I got this Windows Boot Manager in my BIOS? Maybe the old MBR wasn't erased even though I ran a secure Erase on my SSD?

Hallo,

After creating a UEFI bootable USB thumb drive with Rufus (using Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO x64), for a Dell Optiplex 3010 (configured as UEFI only, no CSM, latest firmware version, Windows 8 installed), I didn't see a USB boot option, so I tried to add one manually. Unfortunately I erased the existing boot option (boot manager) by mistake. Although there were two boot options for PXE booting, the machine will not start anymore, even when there is an active WDS server on the network.

I also see Led's 2 and 3 lighting up, meaning according to the manual 'hardware ok but bios possibly damaged/corrupt'.

I understand I cannot start the machine from a bios boot disk because of GPT partitioning, and the UEFI USB boot disk I made might be corrupt (as it didn't show up as a boot option), however I don't understand why it won't boot from the PXE network card, as these boot options are still there.

Any suggestions on how to solve this?

Thanks for any useful tips,
Bavo

I have the PXE boot options disabled in my bios since I do not have a network boot option.

Hi All.

As per the title, I've had several BSODs of late. I've had at least one while playing Guild Wars 2 and at least two upon boot. The last couple were cited as a 'memory management' error, which I took a mental note of.

I have two sticks of 4gb DDR 3 ram which I took from an old system to use in a new build pc I made last week. I had my suspicions that a slot on the old pc motherboard was bad, but I couldn't rule out that it wasn't one of the sticks. I ran Memtest for 8 hours straight with both sticks installed which resulted in a complete pass. I then took out the stick that I thought was reliable and tested the other for just shy of 10 hours - also a pass.

I ran driver verifier a couple of times too and it managed to force a BSOD both times rather quickly as the windows GUI started up. I'm fairly new to this tool to be honest therefore I stopped there. I wasn't exactly sure of my aim here; happy to run it again if required.

I've attached my dump files for your perusal - I look forward to any suggestions on what can be done to rectify this!

Many Thanks,
Neil

P.S. As indicated below, I've continued to receive BSODs.
I've uploaded another crash dump; any advice would be appreciated.

Hello,

I have been using windows xp for a long time. I have two actual HD, one partitioned into 4, and another without any partition, giving me a total of 5. I was using two instance of windows xp installed in drive C and another in drive E (both are actually located in just one HD, but the other HD somehow got in between the two)

I finally decided to change the windows xp in drive C into windows 7. After installation, my previous option of choosing between which windows xp to use no longer appears and it goes straight to my new windows 7. I tried these four command :

bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows XP"
bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=E:
bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast

So now an option appears before loading any windows but whenever i try to go to windows xp, it cant. It seems like i need to do more bcdedit.

Please help. Thanks!

Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

I personally do not recommend 3rd party defrag tools. I have seen them damage restore points and even cause blue screen crashes. Windows has some nice command line flags for the defrag command that will accomplish the same tasks as 3rd party programs. The -b and -w flags will defrag boot files and the boot registry items as well as compact the data to the center of the disk for faster access.defrag c: -b

The first command optimizes boot performance for the Windows drive by defragmenting boot files and boot registry items.

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.

Hi,

I installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode to an SDD and I figured it would be easy to take my old drive which also had Windows 7 installed, hook it up to a SATA port, and copy over the files that I wanted.

In my BIOS interface I can select the SSD drive to boot from, or "Windows Boot Manager". Only selecting the later boots allows me to boot from the SSD, and only if the old drive is not hooked up. When I hook up my old drive (which had Windows 7 installed WITHOUT UEFI), selecting "Windows Boot Manager" will cause my system to try (and fail) to boot from my old drive.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Why is Windows Boot Manager choosing to try and boot from my old drive? Windows Boot Manager I believe resides on the SSD since that was the only drive connected during my new Windows 7 install, so why the heck wouldn't it default to booting the Windows 7 installation on that drive?! I've tried moving the old drive to different SATA ports and to a secondary SATA controller but it makes no difference, Windows Boot Manager always insists on trying to boot from it.

If I hadn't used UEFI I could have just told the bios what drive to boot from. But thanks to this new and "improved" standard I can't exercise this simplest of controls. Any ideas?

My mobo is a Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 btw.

Are you saying that after editing the Registry Win7 will not start? This can be fatal if you didn't save a System Restore point before messing with the registry.

Try a System Restore from System Recovery Options as far back as necessary.

If that fails confirm that Win7 or it's System Reserved partition (preferred if you have it) is Partition Marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If that doesn't help then everything that can possibly be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot leading up to if necessary rescuiing any files before running Recovery or doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, so I apologize if I'm not. But I have a HUGE problem. I have a Gateway laptop that's only about 5 months old. It has Windows 8 on it, and when I started it up this morning, I saw the Gateway logo, and then I kept getting an error message that said 'windows boot manager, boot failed, press ok to continue', which I did, and then got an error message saying 'no bootable device found, press any key'. I pressed ok, and then it took me to the boot option menu, which only gave me one option that said 'windows boot manager
(wcd wd3200bpvt-22jj5t0). When I press this option, it takes me back to the same boot manager error message.

I've tried hitting F12, and it just gives me the boot option menu like I described above. I get nothing pressing F8. If I press F2, I get the InsydeH20 Setup Utility. Under the security tab, it will only allow me to select the 'set supervisor and HDD passwords(there's currently no passwords listed for these). Below it has the option to erase all secure boot setting, select an UEF1 file and restore secure boot to factory default, but it doesn't allow me to go down to any of these options.

I'll be honest and say that overall, I'm not a fan of Windows 8.. it's so different from all of the previous OS's, which I was fairly adept at navigating through in order to troubleshoot when I needed to.. but I am clueless as to what to do with this problem, and have spent hours googling possible solutions, bu...

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 really need some help with my Toshiba laptop.Ok here it is last thursday my Toshiba laptop was working just fine.I just got off of the internet.Itook my laptop with me in the room to listen to some music.When I put the cd in it was skipping a lot so I took that cd out and put another cd in and it played just fine.A few minutes into the cd playing the battery started getting low it was on 48%.I went to go get the plug to charge it and the computer went off.so I turned the laptop back on and plugged the cord into the laptop only to see the error this disk needs to be checked for consistency.It went through stages 1-3.It took forever for the computer to load to windows,so I powered off and ran it again and the same error came up.It took almost 1 hour and this was after it already went through the stages 1 of 1,2 of 2,3 of 3.so I put my Windows recovery disc in and boot from the disk.When I went to reinstall windows a error came saying that it could not find all of the files that were required.I went through all 5 five of the windows vista home basic discs.The windows files were copied but when it got to the 1 cd to expand the files it would not get past that.well the guy that helped me from microsoft windows told me toclick on install now.when it was time to get to the screen that asked for my information he told me skip that and delete my partitions that was listed.so I delete all both of the paritions and created a new one that said Disk 0 and I told him that.After I told hi...

Since I was having some issues with my system, I just reinstalled W7 from scratched on my SSD. With this new install I decided to go the AHCI, UEFI, GPT route instead of MBR and IDE like on my previous install.

Everything installed smoothly. I took a look at my BIOS setting and I can see in my Boot options that my #1 boot option is set to "Windows Boot Manager". My SSD is #2 and my DVD drive is #3. I only have one system installed (W7) so I'm not dual booting.

When I change the boot order and set my SSD as #1, my computer won't boot and tells to select a drive with a bootable system. "Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press any key"

Is this normal behavior?? If not, how do I fix this?
Thanks

A:Why do I have to select the Windows Boot Manager in the BIOS to boot?

When you reinstalled Windows you should have disconnected the other drives and leave only your SSD connected as now you have your boot files on the other hard drive so either reinstall Windows disconnecting the other hard drives and reconnect when you're done or follow the suggestions in this thread

I had had 2 operating system on 2 hard drives (XP and Vista) I took vista off and replaced it with media center. I could boot both xp and media center but the vista boot screen always shows up and would have to go into "ealier versions of windows" and choose my OS from there. I read somewhere to get rid of the vista boot screen I should delete "bootmgr" file and "boot" folder from the root of C: I did this and now nothing works. It tries to boot into vista boot screen but it says files are missing and resets. What do I do?

My Dell Inspiron 660 is 2 months old. It came with Windows 8 preinstalled. My problem: I am trying to change the boot order so I can boot from CD ROM as a first option. I have tried using the "F" keys on boot, but it just ignores me and goes on to boot up. I have also tried the "Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware Settings" in "Change PC Settings" and got the same results. I spent some time on the phone with a Dell tech. After trying all the things I had already tried, he and his supervisor decided I must have a bad Motherboard. Does this sound right? Is there any way to repair this problem?

A:Can't get into Windows Boot Manager to change boot order.

The option your looking for is located in the BIOS. Try using the Del key to access the BIOS setup screen on startup.

I had Vista and XP installed as a dual booting system. I recently removed Vista and reformated the partition where I had Vista installed. Now when I restart my computer the boot loader/manager screen comes up and asks me what OS I want to load. Vista is automatically highlighted and above that 'earlier version" is listed. And I have 30 seconds to make a selection.

What do I have to do to have the computer boot up automatically to Windows XP and not have this screen come up?

A:Boot Loader/Manager (dual boot system)

Hello Techie19

To get rid of the dual-boot option, go to Start/Run and type
msconfig
OK

On the boot.ini tab, click "Check all boot paths".

Hello, I had an issue with my Windows 8 where I was forced to reinstall it. I have completely wiped my SSD and reinstalled Windows 8 on it. However, now it will not let me pick my boot order. It is forcing me to use Windows Boot Manager as my Boot Option 1. If I use anything else, I just get a black screen with a blinking line cursor.

It didn't use to do this before I had to reinstall. I'm not sure how to fix this. It also will not let me choose F11 boot options, it always is forcing me to use Windows Boot Manager.

How do I make it so I can boot from whichever boot order I want, instead of using Boot Manager?

Hi,

Have a new computer with freshly installed W7 on a SSD drive. The computer boots properly unless external HD are connected. If I have external HDs connected (USB 3) it fails to find windows. I've been into the BIOS and there Windows Boot Manager is set as first choice and I have disabled booting from external drives.

Why is WBM unable to find the installation on the SSD? Can I manually change the settings in WBM to select the SSD?

Going nuts on this so any suggestion is appreciated.

Christoffer
