  • Is this for Windows 7 or Windows Embedded Standard 7?

  • To change the default operating system entry, first run the following command to view the existing entries and make note of the identifier for the entry that you want to be the default.

    bcdedit /enum

    You may get back

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier              {current}
    device                  partition=C:
    path                    \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description             Windows 7
    locale                  en-US

    OR

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier              {default}
    device                  partition=C:
    path                    \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description             Windows 7
    locale                  en-US


    To configure the currently running instance of Windows 7 as the default, run the following command.

    bcdedit /default {current}

  • Mark's comment seems to "answer" the question indirectly.

    {default} is the entry which is started automatically for case that there is only on entry, the timeout is not set/has elapsed or if the user did not made a choice.

    {current} is the boot option that is currently in use (or: is currently running)
