Using BCDEDIT to change and modify Windows Boot Entries

Booting is the so called “bootstrapping” that processes and starts the OS (operating system) when the user turns on the computer. A boot sequence is the initial group of operations that the computer operates.

bootloader

In Windows Server, 7 and Vista the bootloader file contains the necessary information is located in [root directory]\bootmgr. For Windows XP, the file is \ntldr.

Bcdedit is a powerful tool that Windows Vista, 7 and Server 2008 uses to manage the boot entry option value in the Windows boot configuration data store (BCD).

Easiest way to edit the boot loader entry names

Open your Command Interpreter > Win + R > and type “cmd.exe” > and use the following command

bcdedit /set {current} description "any name"

Restart your computer to see the results…

For Windows XP users, you can read this old blog article that I wrote.

Note: It is important to backup the bcd entries first:

bcdedit /export c:\savebcdentry

To undo the changes:

bcdedit /import c:\savebcdentry
