this is an open forum and everyone can see it, but I did private message a couple other people just in case they don't notice it.

in the meantime, have you tried using dual boot pro, to manually make an entry for the OS that is missing on the bootloader tab?

I'm not saying this is going to work, because like I said I haven't found anywhere, anyone, that has been successful at dual booting, non raid, and raid.

you can add an entry on the operating systems tab in dual boot Pro, you'll need to know what drive letter the other operating system is on, e.g. if your in windows 7, when you do this, it'll be the drive Windows 7 shows as your raid

Give me an example of how the edit would be done. Remember you are intimately familiar with dualbootpro, I am not and there is no documentation that I can find that shows examples of how the editing you are talking about is to be done.

I'm dual booting Windows & Windows 8. During my bootup, I have a choice of which system I want to bootup. if I don't choose, my default is to bootup Windows 8. This can be changed on the bootup choice screen. If I choose to bootup Windows 7, my system, will reboot from the very beginning. It was mentioned that in Windows Explorer, it shows drive C in both Windows & & Windows 8; it will, but check some of your files real close, and you'll see that your system is starting the Drive C to match the system you're running.
