Windows 10 Insider preview has killed Bootit BM

Postby machare » Sun Apr 10, 2016 9:49 am

I have Bootit BM installed on an SSD in my Intel E6600 based desktop PC.
The disk has an EMBR with about 6 partitions that mostly contain copies of Windows 8.1
There is 1 copy of Windows 10 Insider Preview.
I use Bootit BM to choose what to boot and this has worked fine for some years.
The Windows 10 Insider Preview gets updated regularly with each new build. I joined the insider programme about a year ago. However when I upgraded to build 14316 the PC booted straight to Windows without using Booit BM. I tried to reinstall Bootit from a USB stick using version 1.31c. It appeared to install but the PC just continued to boot Windows 10 Preview :shock:
I then used version 1.32 from a different stick. Now when I boot the PC, after the POST I just get a cursor on the left side of the screen, near the top. :?
How can I get my PC to boot Bootit BM normally?

if you have multiple hard drives you probably have the bios booting the
other hd first.

Thank you for the reply. I suspect that my problems relate to using a USB stick built with the wrong, or not the best video mode, and the original installation having a 2 second timeout. I now don't get the two lines on the screen that appeared before th boot menu, but by increasing the timeout to 4 seconds I do now see the boot menu itself.
