Is it possible to add Windows 8 to boot menu from Windows 7?

I installed Windows 8 using imagex but using bcdboot doesn't add it to boot menu so I thought Easybcd might do the trick. My reason for doing this is to continue using Windows 7 boot loader. Any suggestions?

Here's the command I used with bcdboot (P: drive is Windows 8 and C: current system drive)

bcdboot P:\Windows /S C:

So did you try it with EasyBCD?

I did but the bootloader complained about certificates or something. I decided to go and install Windows 8 from USB and use Win8's bootloader.
