bcdedit question

Is there a way to make "Start Windows Normally" the default option without disabling recovery? I would like to be able to still use winre.

So ONLY thing you want is: change the default menu option to "current running win7 system"? If so Elevated Command Prompt then
Code:
bcdedit/default  {current}

Yeah that worked. Will the "Launch Startup Repair" boot menu ever show again if I have booting issues?

do
Code:
bcdedit /enum  all>c:\bcd.txt
then post c:\bcd.txt

Also try Advanced Boot Options and select "repair your compujter" there. Does that work? Of course there's nothing to repair now. If it works.... then the recovery environment boot entry is correct!

To know if it launches automatically in case of win7 boot problems... I have to see bcd.txt
