  • Hi!

    I first install Windows 8 Developer Preview and then Windows 7. Now I'm seeing the old bootloader, how I can bring back the Windows 8's ?

  • Hey Kaan SEGNUL,

     

    You can also choose which operating system is the default startup by following the steps below: (While using Windows Developer Preview)

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Type Advanced system settings
    • Click Settings on the right column
    • Click View advanced system settings
    • Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings
    • Under Default operating system:, expand the drop down and choose Windows Developer Preview
    • Click OK
    • Click OK

     

    Then restart your system to test that you see the Windows Developer Preview boot screen.

     

    Hope that helps.

  • As you’re dual-booting, highlight WDP (Win8) and press F8. Message ‘Preparing Options’ appears and then displays the boot menu.

     

    Four options exist:

    1. Continue to Windows 8

    2. Use another operating system

    3. Troubleshoot

    4. Turn off your PC
