    Windows 8 & Windows 7 Dual Boot

    Yes, I was trying to find a post I made in may describing the situation, but was unable to get before May 06, 2013.
    I believe the post was made a couple days before that.

    The situation was a member deleted a partition that contained the bootmanager and then was unable to boot his other windows.

    I deleted my bootmanager to replicate his issue, and ran the Windows 8 repair option and Win 8 said there were no windows installation on my system..

    I then ran the Windows 7 boot repair option from the Win 7 installation dvd, and it found BOTH of my windows of my dual boot.

    I clicked repair, and both windows installations were restored, the only change was that I had the classic text version of the boot option during boot instead of the fancy blue gui..

    Ive read that VISUAL BCD EDITOR will bring back the Win 8 gui, but im not interested... Havent tried it.

    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    Well, you can also use the BCDedit command to set "Legacy" boot screen too. I did that for this PC and my Media Station
