Windows 7 on SSD and Windows 8 on HDD - No boot menu

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK here is the situation

I have Windows 7 installed on my SSD drive. Now, i've installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my HDD drive. They are both working, but the problem is, there is no boot menu. If I want to choose which OS to boot I actually must choose which drive to boot - SSD or HDD by pressing F8. There is no pretty boot menu screen like this one here: biggrin.gif

400

That is probably because both OS's have their own MBR on seperate disks. Is there a way to make Windows 8 write MBR to SSD drive where windows 7 is installed?

Thank you!

There's many ways to do this but Easy BCD is probably the easiest way to go about it.

Once installed, go to Add new entry and fill in the details

then go to edit boot menu and your save settings


That should do it, let me know how it goes.
