Windows 7: Boot menu issue

29 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 & 32 bit
Boot menu issue

Hi guys,

I recently installed both 64 and 32 bit versions of Windows 7 on two separate hard drives. However, I am not getting the 32 bit system displayed on the boot menu, making it difficult to choose which system I wish to boot. The only way to access the other system is through motherboard override boot.

Is there any way to add the 32 bit system to the menu?

Thanks for your help.

Install EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required) to the OS which starts with the PC, then add the other one on the Add OS tab.

I tried EasyBCD, however I can only choose a partition which on 64 bit version is (F). When boot menu appears and I try to choose 32 bit version it just says that the windows cant start.
