    Re: Multi-boot menu look

    OK, I seem to be sorted, but it was rather by luck than by skill.

    EasyBCD was telling me I was using winload.efi.

    As part of all this I noticed that Vista wouldn't boot (I think it is time for...

    Re: Multi-boot menu look

    Interesting. I shut down and restarted and it went straight to Win 10 with no menu. I opened up EasyBCD which still showed the menu items. I then noticed the "Use Metro bootloader" check box. Checked...

    Re: Multi-boot menu look

    Well the bad news is that it has made no difference. I still get the text menu. I tried both commands - "standard" and "legacy" (with reboots in between) and nothing changed.

    One thing I hadn't...

    Re: Multi-boot menu look

    Your right, it worked for me too. That was a trap for young players - I thought Powershell did everything CMD did and more and could be universally used instead.

    Hmmm... the command(s) as supplied on that web page don't work in PowerShell. I've tried variations after looking up BCDEDIT, but none of them work.

    The suggested command is

    Multi-boot menu look

    This is a bit of a newbie question I suspect, but how do I change my multi-boot menu from this:

    to this:

    Re: network problem after power cut

    I applied the patch, but if I turn off SMB1 I still can't find the server. Or are you saying that having applied the patch I don't need to turn off SMB1?

    Re: network problem after power cut

    Solved - nothing to do with the power. I had turned off SMB 1.0/CFIS File Sharing Support as it is apparently super-insecure, but it looks like Windows Home Server needs it for networking. Looks like...

    network problem after power cut

    The power went out for about 90 minutes. When it came back, one of the PCs on the network has become semi-inaccessible. "semi" because I can get to it via remote desktop, but if I try through Windows...

    Almost all? How many do you have at home? I have 3 + a laptop. The 3 have all been updated manually - just waiting for the laptop. So what's the expectation as to when they will all be done?

    Now there's weird. I've just come back to the PC and the check boxes are all gone. I'd seen the link you posted. I do have OneDrive enabled but it is not syncing any of the stuff that was ticked. I'd...

  23. Green ticks on desktop icons - Where did they come from?

    There was a big cumulative update to W10 this morning, and now I see that many (not all) of my desktop icons are showing a little tick in a green box. I think the ticks are only on icons that not...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I am not having a lot of luck. The VM installed OK, the old PC was OK after a couple of tries, but the last one had to be installed from an iso again. It just does not want to upgrade in place.
