Thanks for the info but is the last bit really true? I have installed W8 but I haven't seen my old "W7" boot menu again, only the new W8 blue boot menu. Am I missing something here? Do I have to push a button to view the old "W7" boot menu?You never need to rewrite the MBR unless a different bootmanager (XP, Linux, 9x) has altered it.
Ok thanks, but how come the new blue menu does not reflect the entries in easy BCD? I see only W8, W7, and Vista. Not XP, Ubuntu and so on.The new blue menu is the same old one with a different look.
