Here other sources just in case:
How to Dual Boot Windows 8 and Windows 7
You can go to win + r -> msconfig -> ok ->
and there choose boot tab and look what OS is there and also you can check in win + r -> diskmgmt.msc -> ok ->
and look in partitions
I had windows 7 and used the disk management to shrink volume and make a 200GB Partition to install windows 8 on. Once its it was finished I rebooted and promtly installed windows 8 on the 200GB partition that was made. When it boots It gives no option for windows 7 but just loads windows 8. I can see the partition with windows 7 and the files are still there but does not give me the option to boot into it.
Tried looking in MSCONFIG and it only shows windows 8 in the boot section.
I would really like to be able to use my original windows 7 as well.
