Boot Sequence for Partitioned Drive
I recently installed Windows 7 on my laptop. A couple of my old programs, which are essential to my business, won't run on a 64-bit system. I partitioned the hard drive and installed Windows Vista on the partition. All works just fine.
The problem is that on start up the laptop boots Windows Vista. I want it to boot Windows 7. This is because the default OS is the last one installed - in this case, Windows Vista. There was supposed to be an option at the end of installing Vista on the partition to designate which OS should be the default boot system. Either it didn't do it or I missed it. Now I have to manually select Windows 7 as the boot system at startup.
How do I change the boot OS system from Vista to Windows 7? There is apparently no option to do this in Boot Manager or Setup, at least that I can see.
