My PC-configuration: Medion MD8816, OS=Windows 8.1,

 

Away the Cmd 'msconfig' you can configure the 'System Configuration'.

In the General Tab (thet Startup selection) you can chose between following options:

- Normal startup

- Diagnostic startup

- Selectieve startup

 

The 'Selectieve startup' is in my configuration the selected option.

I tried to fix the  'normal startup', as default, but in vain.

When i change to normal start en then reboot,  nothing is modified.

 

How do i have to save my choice?

Can you help me to do this job, please?

 

Thank you

Msconfig iS only to be used for troubleshooting. It needs to stay at Normal.

Thank You for your answer! 

 

I know that it must be Normal startup, but now it isn't (it is 'selectieve startup'); I tried to change and it is OK till I restart my computer

then the system restart and change back to 'selectieve startup'.

 

Some days ago i set 'selectieve startup' by means of  'msconfig' because i have to work with a heavy video program (Pinnacle Studio 17).

In the future I'll work frequently with this program and i would change this parameter every time.

 

Please, Can you tell me wich is the normal way to do?

Lets start from the beginning.  What is the manufacturer & model of the computer?  How much RAM is in it?  What is the model of the harddrive?  For all of this information, you would need to use Speccy, to show what mfg & type of RAM, hard drive info, etc..

I missed the model & mfg at the beginning sorry.  We ask for installed RAM & Hard drive, due to most like me, swap those two items out when they get the unit.  With you having the SSD as first boot device, you should be fine.  Same with the CPU & RAM installed.

Mr Greg,

i tried to swap the HD and SSD, but unchanged situation.

My originally configuration is with a HD and 4GB RAM.

You have to know that i made a Copy Disk of my HD to SSD en then I would make of HD a fixed Data disk without OS and when I wanted copy (disk) the Data to the HD the pgm 'Acronis True Image' asked to me if i wanted preserve the UEFI system and i answered 'Yes' (I was/am not sure if UEFI must be existing also in a data disk)

 

I remember that when i used last the pgm 'Acronis True Image' i saw that (before the boot partition (C:) on SSD) there were not only 3 system partitions, but 6 on my system, exact 2x the original situation on the HD. 

I think that my actual UEFI has partitions for 2 boot systems but it finds alone 1 Boot partition.

This is probably the cause!

 

When i do a consulting by 'Disk Management' with Win8 I see on mij disk0 (ssd) only 3 partitions before the partition C: and 3 for Disk1 before the Data partions.

 

I presume have to delete the 3 system partitions on Disk1 (Hd) so is UEFI not more in confusion.

Can you confirm my assumption?

If Yes, can I do it with Win8? How? Others I can do it with 'EasusUS Partition Magic'!

 

thank you for your care.

I only use Clonezilla for cloning & restoring.  You can make a Pendrive image of Clonezilla at http://tuxboot.org/  I use the amd64 image of Clonezilla, and load to RAM, then save the images for both of our laptops to a Lenovo ix2-4 NAS that we have on our LAN.
