  1. Hey guys, I've recently installed windows 8 on another hard drive and it's booting straight to Windows 8, I'd love to option to boot with windows 7 (I had the option when I had XP/7 dual-booting)

    How would I enable this boot menu? I've done a small amount of research and found a program that'd allow me to enable the boot menu but I'm not too sure if it'll work with windows 7/windows 8 I believe it was called easyBCD. Would this software work?

    Yes, should do (I used it to set up dual boot from Windows 7 on one HDD and OpenSuse on the other, but will work for any PC version of Windows too)(y)
