Windows 7: BCDEDIT - How to Use

I finally realized the problem and solved it.
The original boot configuration has truncated the memory. So via the bcdedit i set the truncated memory value to 4 GB and my pc was reborn.
Thanx for taking the time answering to me.

Hello, by using exactly those commands I added a bootmenu list entry which I want to remove now.

bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows 71"
bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=K:
bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast

I tried to figure how to remove a entry I created manually by using that list of commands BCDEdit Command-Line Options, but apparently I haven't been able to figure out the syntax of how to remove the entry I created above.

Tyvm.

Hello value,

Either option in the tutorial below can help show you how to remove this boot entry. If you like, Option Three is for with the bcdedit command. You would substitute identifier in the command below with the actual identifier displayed for the Windows 71 "description".

bcdedit /delete {identifier}

Hope this helps,

Hello William,

I don't believe that's an option.

While in the boot menu, you could safely just press the power button on the case to shut down (power off) the computer if you like.

there is a shutdown option in the advanced boot options menu (shift F8 if it works).

sometimes it is a hard decision to press the power button to shutdown the computer while the hard drive light is still blinking.

Hello,

I have Windows 7 and XP installed on two diferent drives. When I want to make a disk image of Win7with Windows Backup and Restore, it always makes a combined image of both. This is because BCD is on the XP drive, I suppose, but it is very inconvenient because it takes much longer to backup and to restore, and the saved images take up much more disk space.

I followed this tutorial and did exactly what it says, trying to move BCD to the Win7 drive. However, nothing changed about Backup and Restore, and I have two BCD directories, one on the XP drive (where it shouldn't be) and another one on Win7's.

What do I need to do to correct this, please?

bootmgr is a BOOT MANAGER.

NOT a bootloader. winload.exe IS a boot loader

Why don't you start a thread of your own? Need a screenshot

But anyway, I suspect it's still using the same active partition. you'll have to choose to boot off the windows 7 drive with the other drive disconnected to truly test that windows is booting completely off its own disk.
