DBPro cannot see Windows8

Postby Hasanat » Fri Feb 01, 2013 3:45 pm

I have 3 OS's installed in my computer. Originally I had 3 Win7's, in 3 separate hard drives. One was the original installation and the other 2 were cloned by using Hyperos. It produced the 3 separate entries in the boot configuration.
Recently I purchased Windows 8 upgrade. This I installed in one of the Win7 clones. The installation went all right. When first booting into Win8, it gave an option to either boot into Win8 or the other 2 Win7 installations. If I booted into Win8, everything would be all right. If I chose one of the other 2 Win7's, it would reboot into the Win7. That too is alright. BUT the next time I wanted to boot into Win8, that option was missing. In other words I cannot now boot into Win8. I bought DualBoot Pro, in the hope that it will find the Win8. But this too does NOT show Win8. Only the other 2 Win7 OS's. So this was a waste of money, unless this can be solved.
Surprisingly a free program called VisualBCD DOES show the Win8 as a boot option. I CAN boot into Win8 after using VisualBCD. But only once. Afterwards, it reverts into the 2 Win7 options only. And I have to run VisualBCD again.
I am completely lost. Please HELP.

Have you tried a "startup reapir" using your W8 DVD?
if not you may have to run it twice.
