I have installed Win 8 on a slave HDD.
Everytime I boot to Win 8 my dual boot screen is gone,also Win 7 activation.
Then it boots directly to Win 7.
To go back to Win 8 I have to use EasyBCD.
Once in Win 8....activation for Win 7 gone again
ddinc Windows 8 is set as the default OS at dual boot with Windows 7.
After the dual boot installation, restart your pc, and you will be able to select what OS you would like to start when you turn on the pc.
As for Win 7 activation, what do you exactly mean?. I didn't understand.
Btw what version of Windows 8 are you running at dual boot with windows 7.
Win 8: Enterprise RTM
I get the selection screen only once.
Next boot no screen,directly booting to Win8.
When I set Win 7 as default(within W8):next boot directly to W7 and no activation.
I mean:When:Windows key + pause pressed I get "windows is not activated" at the bottom of the page.
