Hi Shawn

If you use EasyBCD in Windows 8, EasyBCD will use the Windows 7 Boot Loader.

If you would like to use the Windows 8 Boot Loader, do a
Refresh Windows 8
After doing a refresh, you will be using the Windows 8 Boot Loader.

Refresh will also delete EasyBCD.

Hello Ray,

I haven't tested yet, but is that even with the latest version of EasyBCD?

You think it wouldn't since Windows 8 is listed as being supported.

Hello Vinaytrex, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Ready Driver Plus is a program that will need to be uninstalled to remove this entry instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
