    I have an HP PC with 2 physical HD one had Win7 and Win10, and recently I had problem with the Win10, and first I tried to re-install Win10 fresh, but I had problem, then I decided to install Win8 and then upgrade to Win10, however, after installing Win8 I lost the Boot screen to choose either to start Win7 or Win8 (the blue screen), and my PC now sataring always with Win8, so how to fix this problem; I think their is a small SW fixing it but I don't remember its name.

    Thanks for any help in advance,

    Maybe you can use easybcd?

    Thanks Enthousiast, I think this is the SW I was looking for, I will try and then I will report if it didn't work.

    Hi Enthousiast, I have downloaded and installed easybcd, and I found an instructions to solve 3 scenarios, so I tried 2 of them and it didn't work, so I want to try the last option before I give up and re-install win7, but the instructions says (Note – the first section applies to External Devices (e.g USB flashdrives). what I understand the I have to install easybcd in the USB then reboot the PC from the USB, but it didn't work, easybcd didn't run, so what I was missing?

    Update: I have managed to recover Win7 and now I am getting the boot option menu, but in black, so I will continue to try getting the blue menu which is usually created by Win10.
