Hi all,

When I turn on my Windows tablet, I'm presented with the option to select Remix or Windows. The issue is that I have to have the keyboard attached to switch between the two as the touch screen doesn't appear to work. It The boot screen doesn't look like the one from their website; just a DOS looking two line option .

Any thoughts on how to change it to a touch screen option where I can select with my finger? I'm running on a Dell Venue 11 pro with Core M.

Thanks

I'm not seeing any boot screen on their website. But what I think you're referring to is likely a screen from a legacy/BIOS device.

You might be able to get something similar though. First try from windows Advanced Reboot ==> Use a device and see if you can boot RemixOS from there.

Yes, I think that it was I'm talking about. On the Remixos download page there is a video from Lilliputing where he starts the machine and is presented with a blue screen and two options (Pictured below)

Mine boots to a different screen (also pictured below).

My goal is to have it boot so that I can select the OS with my finger. Any help is appreciated.

Yea, I think that's legacy/BIOS on first screen. The second pic is grub (essentially on BIOS - that RemixOS button on 1st screen silently starts the 2nd screen).

What you can try is on Windows start command prompt as admin and issue bcdedit /copy {current} /d Copy or bcd /copy {default} /d Copy.

Then reboot. (make sure WindowsBootManager is default)

Thanks. I gave them both a shot but it didn't work. The first one took, but didn't work. The second on said there was an error.

Have you set your default bootloader back to WindowsBootManager? Easiest way without an external app (EasyUEFI) - is to boot into (BIOS/)UEFI and change the boot order.

If that doesn't work post the output of bcdedit

No luck. I did it in the following order: 1) ran the bcdedit as admin (said it was changed) 2)restarted. 3) changed the boot sequence so that windowsbootmangager was first. 4) restarted.

Here is the bcdedit:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>bcdedit

Windows Boot Manager

{91362556-beec-11e5-82f1-90e5538d0e68}

Windows Boot Loader

What is your system doing on reboot?
Booting straight to windows, grub (your pic#2) or something else?

Good.
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} timeout 30
(fyi don't do bcdedit /copy ... anymore, once was enough)

And we are trying to get to the screen seen here, similar to pic #1, but will need to press a few more buttons.

OK. It boots to that blue screen, but remixos is not on there. Shows windows and 2 copies if windows. I assume that's because I pasted the bcdedit twice.
