Windows 7: WIndows 7/8 dual boot start up Question

WIndows 7/8 dual boot start up Question

Hi Folks I'm successfully running Windows 7/8 on the same ssd with two separate partitions. When I turn on my notebook I used to get a nice windows screen asking if I want windows 7 or 8. However, recently the start screen changed to what appears to look like is just a continuation of the bios. What happened to the cool looking screen I initially got when I installed the dual boot? Can I get it back? Other then this little glitch...everything is ok.

Also....is there an update to the version of windows 8 I downloaded several weeks ago?

Sounds like Windows 7 boot manager is now in control instead of Windows 8. The easiest way to fix this I can think of is install EasyBCD and make Windows 8 the default. That should get you back to the Metro look Boot Manager Selection screen.
