No timout on Dual Boot

#1
I have a Windows 7 and Windows 8 dual boot machine with Windows set as the default which means that the Legacy (Windows 7) text boot menu is used at start up.

My problem is the timeout does not appear on the boot screen despite being set to 30s in the BCD:

What do you mean, "timeout does not appear" ?
Are you saying you don't get a boot menu ?
