Windows 7: Hacking W7 OS to tweak F11 behavior

I have set up the ramdrive entry like this :




and wonder why it is different from this one that I don't remember how I got it :



there are more lines in the latter, but am dealing with the former with my Hiren BUSB stick. But bizzarely, when I was working with the latter, I was able to get into the RECOVERY partition. I think I remember where the latter came from : inside the Windows 7 OS when I could get into the RECOVERY partition that is now blocked by the HP warning message displayed in post #12.

And yes, I have H:\bootmgr in the RECOVERY partition !

OK ! Just found how I got the latter BootICE display : using a boot CD made by a super Geek forum helper named 'sioux' or... SIW2 ; )

Will try to duplicate the entry above and report back soon...

The duplication failed to give results.

On more thing of interest is that the boot CD is detected before the freezing blinking cursor... and... the HP logo does show first with the option of triggering the Startup Menu with the 'ESC' key so... I mislead you a little bit earlier.

Something worth of considering (maybe) is that all GUID folders that dwelled into C:\recovery of the Windows OS partition (I think it was that folder) are gone.

PS: as I understood, these two entries are for the RECOVERY partition BCD

Yes, the entries should be in H:\boot\bcd.

That is the bcd store that will be live if H is marked active.

Any error messages?

What are the bcd entries?

Check the PBR using bootice - make sure partition H has bootmgr boot record ( install it even if it says it is already there)

In the Christmas and New Year Holidays, I understand that you (and I) might be unavailable for some times so, we will be patient for the replies to each other...

Going to sleep...

BCD conforms to your post #30 (do you want to see it ?) and no... no error messages. Just the blinking cursor !
