Hi,

Windows 8 not booting on windows 7.

I installed Windows 8 on my second hard drive as second OS to Win 7 on other Hard drive. Later I restored Windows 7 for some reasons.

Now Win 7 works well but I can not boot into Windows 8 which still exists.

Now how do I fix this and boot windoss 8?

Have you tried Startup Repair? If that does not help, I guess you have to re-install OS. Windows 8 RP would be released soon, you can get a clear installation then. All problems would be fixed.

The problem is with the MBR. Install EasyBCD (http://download.cnet.com/EasyBCD/3000-2094_4-10556865.html) in the Win 7 OS. Go into EasyBCD and add an entry for the Win 8 CP OS.

Or you can insert your Win 8 CP DVD and repair the MBR from there.
