I would suggest enabling legacy boot menu which will give you the option to select either of the OS at early boot stage.

1. Boot in to "Windows 8" and open an elevated command prompt.

Elevated Command Prompt - Open in Windows 8

2. Enter the below command exactly and reboot the machine.

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

Hope this will help.

Dual booting Win 7?
Probably been asked before, but I had a quick search and couldn't find much. On my system, I have Linux Mint as my primary OS with XP for gaming. Is it possible to install 7 to a custom location so it doesn't overwrite the existing installs?
