How to get UEFI boot menu to show up after windows 10 upgrade ?

HP Envy 700-220ef
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP desktop PC, Envy 700-220ef, upgraded itself to Windows 10 a few days ago, without my blessing.

 

Since them, at startup time it goes directly from the BIOS/POST screen to the Windows blue logo, so I get no chance, as I did before with Windows 8.1, to see the UEFI menu and select from it the operating system or boot source I want.

 

How can I get the UEFI menu back ? Thanks.

How to get UEFI boot menu to show up after windows 10 upgrade ?

@jpmarinier, welcome to the forum.

 

You should right click on the Start button in the lower left corner: select Command Prompt (Admin) / at the Prompt copy and paste this command: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes / it will tell you that the command has been completed successfully / type Exit and reboot.  I did this and it gave me the Bootmgr screen.

How to get UEFI boot menu to show up after windows 10 upgrade ?

 

Hi old_geekster, many thanks for the prompt reply.

 

Unfortunately the command "bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes" makes the Windows Boot Manager menu visible, but it does not make the UEFI menu visible. My Windows partition on the Envy is unreachable at the moment, but I have tried that on a different computer.

So far the only way I have found to bring the UEFI menu back is to reinstall Fedora (version 24, most recent one), asking for both /boot and / to be reformatted. It works but it is a bit heavy.

 

Wisdom is the sum of our mistakes!  Indeed, and Windows 10 is the time integral of their mistakes 🙂

How to get UEFI boot menu to show up after windows 10 upgrade ?

You are welcome, @jpmarinier.  I am at a loss on how to show the UEFI menu on boot in Win 10.  In fact, I am not certain that it can be done.  I wish I could help further.
