    Which bootloader are you using? If you don't need GRUB just restore the Windows one, if you want GRUB for some reason just edit the config files. In any case, the simplest way to edit a BCD bootloader: Download EasyBCD 2.0.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

    You see an option to restore the Windows BCD bootloader and an option to configure it. 1+1=2.
