Question about Dual Booting - W7 and W8

When Dual Booting Windows Vista and 7

I had a Option on my boot loader like

Windows 7
Windows Vista

(Removed Vista and had a Single 7)

I then had Windows 7 and with the Old Windows 8 Consumer Preview I managed to Dual boot it. The problem i found was after dual booting it.

It went into a different boot menu, the blue screen with Developer Preview screen showing W7 and 8 Preview
When i clicked on Preview 8 It went into 8 Normaly But the problem i had and hated was when i wanted to go into W7 after i clicked it, the whole "thing" restarted went back and reboot again to windows 7 - wasting a lot of time.

So my question is with the new W8 can i dual boot it like the ^^ ( How is it with W8 Pro)

Windows 7 -- Goes into 7
Windows 8 -- Goes into 8

Rather then

1 boot screen showing

8 - goes into 8
7 - Restarts from the start and THEN BOOTS and wasted time from start to 7

Thank You

This how the new bootloader works.
