    OK, fixed it. I used EasyBCD to delete all the boot entries and then recreated them and bingo! the old boot menu reappeared. By "old" I mean the b/w text based one rather than the light blue background graphical menu that Win8/10 sets up. It loads much faster and directly loads the selected OS rather than rebooting first.

    A lot of the moaning seems to me to be quite unfounded. This is a technical preview - a much earlier stage of development than we've seen in the past. It shouldn't be surprising that (a) things are rough round the edges (b) things change from build to build (c) some things don't work (yet). It's not often users get an opportunity to (maybe) influence development of a major product from a fairly early stage.

    Exactly if things are so bad with Windows 10 previews, I don't know why I'd even subject myself to the hassle. Unless I wanted to use the name M$ in forums.

    (a) They are not "so bad" (b) you get involved with the previews because you are interested in the technology and want to see it develop and maybe influence it.

    You pretty much display your biases when you use "M$".

    The feature I'm complaining about worked fine in the two previous previews.. So why break it??

    Who knows why it "broke"? Having been engaged in large scale systems development back when the world was young it doesn't surprise me at all that things that apparently worked stop working when you add something else. It is the nature of systems development, especially in something as complex and intertwined as an operating system.

    This is a work in progress, not a finished product. You have to expect things to be fluid.
