    NOT my experience. I added boot menu entries using EasyBCD and I still get the Win8 graphical menu.

    But then, I did not change to Win7 by default. I think if you do that, you do not reboot anymore when you select an OS entry from the selection menu -- because you're using the Win7 boot loader, not the Win8 boot loader.

    Uhm, uh, just how do you switch to one of the other systems without rebooting?

    Probably easiest to set win7 as default in msconfig.

    If you set your default OS to Windows 7, instead of W8, you don't have to reboot.
    Yes as I said - you will only need to do that if you are using the win8 graphical boot menu.
    I was agreeing with you.

    The W8 boot loader makes you reboot if you try to start any other OS.

    This is presumably to punish you for daring to use anything other than W8.
    The W7 boot loader doesn't reboot, even if you select a different OS.

    If you want to swap from a running OS to another, you still have to reboot.

    The W8 boot loader gives you the option of changing the default OS.

    If you want to get rid of W8 GUI, Don't Press Shutdown on Windows 8. Press Restart, select Windows 7 as default OS. Restart and you will get the old Boot Manager on Windows 7. If you want to shutdown from Windows 8, press restart, and in Windows 7 Boot Manager, press power button on your PC or notebook.
    Do you understand?

    The confusion, I believe, comes from different interpretations of "reboot" -- and when that selection is done.

    I think we ALL understand now, thanks. So, there's no need to be RUDE!
