File bcd associated with group WIN7 has changed

Postby Grabby » Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:26 am

I had Windows 7 Professional installed on my notebook, then added BootIt Bare Metal to its own partition, thereby removing the limit on the maximum number of partitions. Then I decided to add Ubuntu 12.10 as described in

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=279

Everything went fine, except that whenever I boot I get a “File Changed” popup box with the message

“File bcd associated with group WIN7 in partition MBR 0 on HD0 has changed.”

Windows 7 is in MBR 0 and Ubuntu’s root partition is in MBR 1 along with grub2. Looking at

I tried setting bcd to update automatically, but the popup still shows up. I have multi-os enabled. What should I do?

You enabled/used multi-os - typically you just install to its own partition
(http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/) - if you did that, you can remove
the multi-os from it, you can also go to "groups" on the partition you have
multi-os enabled on and change the bcd to automatically update instead of
manual.
