More than once did I spend (lose…) long minutes on google to find the proper syntax with windows bcdedit command line.

I came with the quick batch below that will set different entries : win7, winpe, grub4dos, etc …

You need to edit the batch to set the path to your BCD store.

Beware that the BCD is overwritten each time.

Note that this is greatly (mostly) inspired from this page.


@echo off
setlocal
set BCDEDIT=%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\bcdedit.exe
set BCDSTORE=C:\temp\BCD

del %BCDSTORE% /F

rem create - rem if not needed
%BCDEDIT% /createstore %BCDSTORE%

rem create bootmgr entry
%BCDEDIT% /store %BCDSTORE% /create {bootmgr}
%BCDEDIT% /store %BCDSTORE% /set {bootmgr} description "Boot Manager"
%BCDEDIT% /store %BCDSTORE% /set {bootmgr} device boot
%BCDEDIT% /store %BCDSTORE% /set {bootmgr} timeout 20
