    i cant seem to get a selection on the os boot if i want win 8dev or win 7

    If you ran the install for Windows 8 from within you Windows 7 install then
    you've replaced your Windows 7 install with Windows 8. To dual boot, you
    should have booted from the Windows 8 install media.

  • I have the same problem... At the moment, Win Dev. Preview is set as the default boot and everything works great - I get to choose between Win Dev. preview and Win 7 during boot ... but when Win 7 is set as default, it doesn't ask me - it just boots up in Win 7 no matter what...
