Recently i installed Win 8 to a second disk in my machine. I currently have my everyday 7 install on an SSD and thought i would try out 8 for a bit to decide if it was worth installing.
So I made the decision to stick with Windows 7 but now I can't seem to boot into it. If i choose the SSD as a boot device it still loads the Win 8 OS chooser. When I click 7 it just restarts and i'm back to the same place.
The only way I can get to 7 is to pull the drive with 8 on, then when I get the "drive missing" error on the OS chooser I can pick 7 and boot.
I've tried bootrec /fixmbr and /fixbcd from a Windows 7 boot USB but it's still doing it and won't boot straight to 7 any more.
Am I missing something?
On top of this I now can't see the drive with 8 on regardless of if it's on SATA or USB on my 7 install.
Thanks for any help!
