    the above pictures shows windows 7 on installation give the option to repair, and automatically detects additional OS partitions/ boot sectors and repairs itself. however in windows 8/ server 2012 seems that function is completely gone as shown by picture below.

    windows 8/server 2012 dont automatically detect OS boot sector anymore after restoring my image to a different partition and this is a headache, and worse once I get into that screen of 4 choices, I can no longer go back to windows installation unless a restart, boot from usb/disk again and it is quite annoying.

    any solution to this?
