    Default Dual Boot Problems of Win 7 and Win 8

    Hello, everyone,

    I've installed Win 8 on a partition with Win 7 already in situ as original OS on C:. But when the boot manager comes up it won't let me choose the OS to use.It will only allow me to select the win 7 OS though both appear on the boot menu screen. The cursor won't move away from win 7 though I have installed win 8. I rebooted and it went into win 7. And this does not happen frequently.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    When Windows 7 is running, pls run CMD and enter \boot\Bootsect.exe /NT60 All. Pls pay attention to the space. If it runs withour error, a serial of letter will pop up to indicate you. Then reboot your computer. Your dual boot problem will be fixed. I have met the same problem and solved in this way. Have a try.
