Solved How to change bootloader name?

Post by jairus on 13th January 2009, 10:29 am

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader Timeout: 15 seconds.
Default OS: Windows Vista Starter (recovered)

Entry #1

Name: Windows Vista Starter (recovered)
BCD ID: {default}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #2

Name: Microsoft Windows XP
BCD ID: {d8dc1789-d585-11dd-a71b-001b38fcf09d}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NTLDR

My question is how can I make "Windows Vista Starter (recovered)" to "Microsoft Windows Vista"?

Start >> type in CMD right click >> Run as Administrator type in bcdedit /enum

You be able to see the list of records in the boot loader, with the fields: id, description, etc.

To set the default, type: bcdedit /default {ID}

To change the description, use the syntax: bcdedit /set {ID} description "Name you want here"


So in your case you should type something like:

bcdedit /set {ID} description "Microsoft Windows Vista".

You can type: bcdedit /help to get a list of all of the parameters/flags you can use.

I've got an error when I typed
bcdedit /set {ID} description "Microsoft Windows Vista"
The element data type specified is not recognized, or does not apply to the specified entry.
Run "bcdedit /?" for command line assistance
:oops:
