  • If the boot menu doesn't have both installs listed then it wont prompt you to chose. You can use EasyBCD by NeoSmart Technologies to edit the Windows 7 boot menu. It allows you to define start-up settings and edit boot entries.

    http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1

     

     

    After downloading and installing, here is a guide:

    1. Run EasyBCD, go to the "Add/Remove Entries" screen
    2. Enter the name you'd like to associate with the entry you're about to create in the "Name" box. For instance, "My Windows 7 Install"
    3. Select the letter of the drive/partition Windows Vista is installed on from the drop-down menu (e.g. "C:"). It's important to note that the Drive Letter must be the one currently visible in My Computer that points to the drive that Vista/7 is installed on. Even if the drive letters change from install to install, use the drive letters as they appear in your current boot. EasyBCD will automatically convert them to the proper drive & partition numbers that can be understood by the Vista bootloader.
    4. Press the "Add Entry" button, and wait for the notification telling you everything went OK.
    5. The operating systems list should immediately change to reflect the new changes, and you're all set.
    6. Optional: Go to the "Change Settings" page or the "Advanced Options" and customize the options available for this entry.

  • BCDEDIT is official command line tool for manipulating Boot Configuration data. It may require some studying before actually using it.

    VistaBootPro is a third party graphical tool. It used to be freeby. Let the name not fool you. Even if it says Vista in the name, it applies to Windows 7 too.
