Boot order changing
« on: 10-June-10, 21:21:35 »

Saw a couple posts of this issue already but they had slight differences.  Mine keep changing randomly when windows does and upgrade.  And I have to set all of my boot devices to my main drive and give it no other option or it won't find it.  Gives me the run.DLL error otherwise.  Just curious why it changes back when windows does and upgrade really.  Other than that I don't mind having to set all boot options to the one hard drive.  Anyone else having similar problems?

I don't quite follow when you say, 'when windows does and upgrade'. Are you saying the boot order changes after running Windows Update?

Yeah, last night windows had done an update and was restarting.  When I came in this morning it was telling me to choose proper boot device.  I went into bios and they were all changed around.  Does this whenever windows does update.

Do you know what was installed with the update? (You can check this by viewing the Windows Update history)

Right now I do not because I am at work, but it does this every time windows does an update and restart is required.

 Does the boot order change only when you get a re-start with Windows update? It doesn't change with normal re-start or shutdown and cold boot? See what happens if you set updates to download but notify you to install them and restart yourself.

Yeah normal restart and cold boot are fine.  Just when windows has the restart required to finish updates.  Even if I do it manually or let windows countdown and restart it will do it.
