Lenovo IdeaPad G50-45 Always Boots Into Windows Boot Manager

So, after some time of having reformatted the laptop in favor of Windows 7 from the original Windows 8 OS, I encountered a problem with the UEFI system which forced me to configure the BIOS with the Legacy config, lest the system would not boot. While the system works just fine with a Legacy configuration, it now had to go through Windows Boot Manager every single time I rebooted the system even though there's only a single OS to choose from: Windows 7.

Is there any way I could bypass the Windows Boot Manager whenever I'm making a coldboot of the system?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

I don't know about removing the Windows Boot Manager entirely, but you could just set the time out to 0 seconds so that the system booted directly to Windows 7. 

 

To do.....

 

Just do a search on msconfig.exe and run that application.  When it opens, select the Boot tab and then make sure Windows 7 is the default operating system.  Enter 0 in the Time Out box and click on the Apply button.  When the computer is rebooted it will boot directly to Windows 7

I tried your suggested method but it did not work. Upon applying the configuration you mentioned and after restarting the computer, it booted on the Windows Boot Manager again:

So, based on the link you referred, the issue I raised is normal, then?

Follow the instructions in post #8 in this thread.  That should resolve the Boot Manager Menu from being displayed entirely.....

I see it as being normal.  My best guess is the Windows Boot Manager was hidden until you had your troubles and then it was unhidden.
