Quick Reminder on bcdedit

For dual (or triple) – boot setups with Windows 7 you will have to change the boot entry and/or the boot order…

To do this, open a command prompt (WITH admin priviledges!) and type

bcdedit

To rename the entry, use

bcdedit /set {GUID} description “Your Boot Entry Name”

to change the default boot os, use

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} default “{GUID}”

The GUID will be shown by the bcdedit command next to the corresponding entry
