    Once Windows 8 RTM is on the shelves I will switch completely over to it. Until then I run both systems with Windows 7 as primary and I just play around in Windows 8 to get my feet wet and understand what is coming up. I'm also very interested in the new Windows tablets. I have an original...

    Got Easy BCD working on Windows 8 with Windows 7 for second choice but .....

    I understand why Windows 8 boots faster than Windows 7. The problem ( in my mind ) is the way Easy BCD works.

    Cannot dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 8

    Well, sorry to report things have gotten worse. Earlier this morning, after I made that previous post, I decided to try System Repair from the Windows 7 install disk but when I ran that it said it was the wrong operating system. Then, when I tried to go to Windows 8 I got an error screen and it...

    Big big trouble Yesterday every time I tried to boot into Windows 7 it would tell me my disks needed to be checked but didn't seem to find any problems. But, when I get into Windows 7 my programs will not select using the cursor. Clicking does nothing. The mouse moves the cursor but that is...
