trying again to restore Windows 8 CP boot option in Bootmenu

Postby DEVILSAN » Tue Apr 10, 2012 6:14 pm

Hi everyone ,

I am going to try again, i do had some previous post trying to fic my machine , I had windows xp 64 bit & Windows 8CP as secondary OS 64bit. I screwed up with the XP so I have installed 7ulimate 64 bit i guess its better choice, but again i had no entry in the boot menu of Windows 8 CP just the Windows 7 as default only OS , so i tried to create the new Entry manually using BCDEDIT


Code: Select all
bcdedit /create {bootmgr} /d "Windows 8 CP"
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=G:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \bootmgr

bcdedit /displayorder {bootmgr} /addlast
becasue Windows 8 installation drive is G

doing this i did got the entry that says Boot loader manager but it does not loads windows 8, secondly i think entry should be called Windows 8 CP but instead its called Windows Boot Manager.. can anyone please help me make an entry in the boot menu to launch Win 8 CP just by selecting from OS Selection menu ...?

You might try repairing the boot menu w/ your Windows 7 DVD.
Boot to the DVD & choose "repair my computer" then select "boot menu repair" (something like that, I cannot find any screenys w/ the exact language).
