I installed 10 Pro today & msconfig shows 8.1 & not 10 as my OS.

Anyone know why this is happening ?

On startup I get 8.1 & the Macrium Reflect boot time recovery options to choose from.

If I choose 8.1 it boots into 10 Pro anyways.

Annoying, but I can live with it.

Maybe after 30 days or so the windows.old folder will go away & things will get fixed ?

If you did an upgrade from 8.1 it keeps the original boot.ini entry from 8.1.

I have seen loads of machines like this. It does no harm at all. Probably if you click on 'This PC' your C drive may say win 8 too.

There are ways to change the lable but if it's not bothering you too much I would just leave it.. as I said it doesn't harm anything.

 

How did you install Win 10? If you had done a clean install, Win 10 would be showing instead of Win 8.1

Hi, msconfig reflects the bcd, to alter to Windows ten, open a cmd prompt as admin, go to search and type:- command prompt, right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator"

 

At the prompt type:- bcdedit /enum > 0 & notepad 0 The bcd will open. under description you will see windows 8.1, to change still at the command prompt, If under Windows Boot Loader, next to "Identifier" you see {current} type this:-

 

bcdedit /set {current} Description Windows 10 (press enter) Anything else post the notepad output here for us to see.

Hi, sorry, this site appeared to have lost it's connection to the cloud, and I have only just been able to log on.

 

My error, I meant to tell you to enclose the windows 10 in ( " ) the cmd (you can run it again) should be:-

 

 

bcdedit /set {current} Description "Windows 10" (press enter). Ms config will now show windows 10.

I uninstalled 10 pro since the previous info was bogus.

I went back to 8.1 pro.

My main reason for updating to 10 was to see if uninstalling Avast Premier would leave my ethernet connection un-affected.

It did not.

I have your info saved to use it the next time I migrate to W10 Pro.

If does not work I'll let you know.

:)

Hi, you are doing yourself a disservice going back to 8.1, it is not going to be a permanent solution. Windows ten is vastly superior to 8.1. You do not need any third party AV's, windows defender and windows defender firewall are all that's needed. How did you uninstall Avast? You need to use their uninstaller to be properly rid of it.

 

After this, it is sometimes necessary to reset winsock and ipv4 . If you are having connection problems we can help. Go back to windows ten and let us know what problems, if any, you are having.
