Windows 10 gives us the possibility of creating a dual boot with other systems, whether Microsoft or other developers, this allows us to have two different systems, but with the same hardware resources saving money and by default, when using this function , the operating system displays the dual boot menu or operating system selection menu so that it is possible to select the operating system with which we want to log in..

 

For various reasons, it is possible that after an update this system selection menu is not available and through this tutorial we will see how to activate this dual boot again.
