Installed Win7 (2nd one) after win 8

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok.. I have

Win 7 Ultimate on Drive A
Win 8 on Drive B
Win 7 Premium on Dive C (just installed)

during install.. all is fine, after 1st reboot, i see the win 7 boot menu... showing
Windows 7
Windows 8
Windows 7 Ultimate

finished installing.. reboot again

now the Windows 7 ultimate is not there?
in My Computer.. i do not see the HD at all...
If i go into the Device manager.. it IS there.
why cant i get to it or even see it?


and how do i get the Win8 boot loader menu back!
thanks!

Right click Computer, then select manage then storage.

It shows there right?

EDIT: Also, if you need to add entries or edit the bootloader

You can do that with this, EasyBCD.

yes, it does now that i went into DISKPART and turned it back on.
but it seems that the boot option is gone... i cant seem to boot to it no matter what.

tried to put the Win7 disk in to repair it.. it doesnt see the Win7 ultimate... Win8 doesnt see it either.

You can always boot into the drives using bios boot selection, F11 or F12 at startup.

To fix the bootmanager you could try EasyBCD, or try this.

Used easybcd and well.... Lol never seen this happen before. It acted like it was the first boot. Rebooting again to see what happens now! Lol

Edit: nope it boots. Gets to preparing your desktop. Then gets this odd blue screen. Not bsod. Says preparing your settings for web platform customizations! Wtf! Lol

i have tried and tried. the Win7 ultimate will not get past this "Setting up.. Web Platform customizations"...

i have tried a repair boot.. nope. it cant find any restore points... nothing.

This is really odd. All i did was reboot to the CD.. install Win 7 premium on a separate HD.. and reboot a few times to finish the install.


Anyone!???

thanks!
