Windows Boot Manager??? For Bios, under boot option

Okay, I tried custom installing W8 OEM for the first time to my SSD and it created 2 Partions. Everything is going good until in the middle of the process, I had a power disruption.

So just to make sure I custom 're' install my OEM to my SSD again. I change the Boot option to be my DVD Drive to install my OEM. I Format, then deleted the partions. I clicked 'NEW' and this time IT CREATED 4 PARTIONS ????(They are 300MB Recovery partition, 100mb system Partition, 128MB MSR partition, and the rest of storage for Primary partion). Anyways so I just clicked Primary then next and select my primary ssd. It booted up and everything, and finally takes me to metro, able to use the desktop and everything. So I thought every thing is fine.

Shut Down the computer. Went to the bios to change the boot option back to my SSD. This time there's a new option. Windows Boot Manager. So I just ignore that, and select my SSD as number Boot Option 1 and DVD as second. But this time, it doesnt allow me to boot.

I keep getting black screen saying bla bla bla...You need to install a boot drive and press any key to continue...

Went back to the boot bios. Disable my option except boot 1 which is my SSD. SAME MESSAGE.

So finally I went to Bios option and click 'Load UEFI Defaults.' Clicked that and save and exit. Then it magically booted me to functioning windows 8 in less that 5 seconds. Everything is fine.

i went back to the Bios but this time to check. the boot order goes like this. Boot option 1 is the Windows Boot Manager, second, my SSD, third my dvd drive.

It works fine, but why am I using Windows Boot Manager as option 1 for booting. Would that cause problem in the future?


Note:
My first time building so no other device plugged in except SSD 64 GB, mouse, keyboard, ASUS Optical drive.

  1. Looks like it started a second install on a 2nd partition, so might just reformat that 2nd partition

    I format the two partitions, and deleted them. Before I create a new Partion, there's only one option of drive selected which is my SSD

    Did you ever figure this out, going through the same thing right now and it's driving me nuts.
  4. Never heard anything further
  5. BUMP

    This is frustrating me now and this is the best worded question I can find online - it's exactly as I would write it.

    Most times that I boot up from fresh, after the BIOS POST screen it gets stuck on a blue* screen that you can ctrl+alt+del from but nothing else.


    *it's not the BSOD, it's the same blue as you get when you have multiple boot partitions and it asks you "Choose an Operating System"

    Any thoughts would be great - I've tried changing UEFI/Legacy settings, boot priority, fast boot options and probably more
  6. i think i have a similiar problem. I havnt solve this problem as well, but i got it to work before for windows 10 pro not windows 10 home, is probably the boot options # and boot override you clicked on.
