Windows Developer Preview doesn't show boot menu at startup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use the Windows boot manager, and Earlier Version (XP) and WDP.

    After using Windows 8 (WDP) I select shutdown. The laptop shuts down. But when I start the laptop back up, instead of dispaying the Windows boot menu, it boots straight into Windows 8.

    Any ideas?

    Please try the following and let me know if it works:


    1.       Go to Control Panel

    2.       System

    3.       Advanced System Settings

    4.       Advanced

    5.       Startup and Recovery

    6.       Change the default OS to XP.

    Can you describe to me how you setup the dual boot system?
