Windows 7: Can't skip boot manager after update

Can't skip boot manager after update

My dad was "helping" me by updating my computer without consulting me. I didn't see what he did but I think he only installed some updates as far as I know...

Anyway since then every time I turn on my computer it loads Windows Boot Manager first instead of loading straight to Windows 7. I only have Windows 7 installed on this computer so there's no point in it asking me what operating system to load. I tried the 2 main methods described on these forums and they have not fixed the problem. Now the boot manager stays there until I select an option. Before this my computer used to boot in 30 seconds! Now it has to load the boot manager which takes an additional 30 seconds itself.

I did go into system properties>adv settings>advanced>startup and recovery>unchecked time to display list of operating systems.



I also tried msconfig>boot


I'd appreciate help in fixing this annoyance.

You may have to cleanup the MBR. See steps 4 and 5 in this tutorial: Dual Boot - Delete a OS

Make sure you execute both steps - else you'll have a problem.

You know what I noticed is that the bios is not displaying either. I just moved about 2 weeks ago and transported my computer in the car. do you think the cmos battery could be loose or something and that's why the bios isnt showing up?

edit: above link did not help me, easy bcd went through step 4 but hangs at step 5. now what do I do, Im afraid to restart my computer...

well thanks for no help guys. I fixed the problem myself and easybcd just ****ed up everything more than it was already so if you are having boot problems avoid this program all together. anyway if you come across this thread with the same problem, I ended up using the bios menu to reset settings to default. good luck.

edit:
found out the wireless keyboard I had attached was also part of the problem. unplug everything and see if that helps.

Boot manager missing after BIOS update
Story of my life..I'm confused. I updated my BIOS as I was having a problem mentioned in one of the updates. I was using the Easyflash2 by Asus and the update succeeded but when it re-booted I got the awful news..boot mgr missing. Would my best bet be to just re-image? Thanks for your help.
