Hello all, it's been a while...

I have Windows 8.1 installed and then I installed Windows 7 afterward and now the system is using the Windows 7 bootloader as opposed to the Windows 8.1 bootloader. What I want to do is get set the Windows 8.1 as the default bootloader. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I think this Tutorial might help.
Read the Note section about the default boot OS. That may be the trick.

http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/5245-startup-options-enable-disable-windows-8-a.html

  • If you dual boot Windows 8 with another OS (ex: Windows 7 or Vista), and the other OS (ex: Windows 7 or Vista) is set as the default OS to run at startup, then you will not see the new Windows 8 Startup Options GUI boot menu. Instead, you will only see the old Windows Boot Manager screen.
There are other Tutorials at the bottom for more help.

Haha. Thanks a lot Jim :cool: Phone Man? You know a thing or two about custom Android ROMs?
What's an Andriod. :p

I just did some looking in the Tutorial section and found that Note. Brink has written a lot of good Tutorial along with other members of this group. I just pass it along and learn new things as I do.
