    Yes I know what you mean, its just the timing of WDP manager that is annoying I think I will stay with the 7 boot manager for the time being at least I still have the option to go back again.

    Thank you all for your help

    At some stage you will need to delete WDP, & install Windows 8 BETA.

    Hiya Pooch,

    You can give this a go.

    Just select the drive of the Windows partition whose bootmgr you want to use, then click Apply.

    E.g if you want to use win7 boot mgr - and win7 is on C , then select C and click Apply.

    See if that does it for you. NT6BTSELx64.zip

    Thank you SIW2

    To confirm that I understand what it does. It saves me typing MSConfig and selecting the Boot manager.

    This would have been a neat answer, it works nicely under Windows 7 but does not work under WDP so I can only do a quick change one way

    Get it to work under WDP and it will be a great little tool

    It would be even better if I could choose the drive without having to press save before reboot
