Windows 7: triple booting windows 7, windows 8 and ubuntu

I thought you said you were trying to boot the Windows 8 DVD? If so then trigger it using BIOS key for Boot menu and you should next see "Press any key to boot disk." If not then there's something wrong with the disk.

i have a key for win 8.1 Pro but not the dvd. i got the key cause of a favour i did for a friend and he offered me the key for the favour. i tried pm'ing him for the downloader for it but he didnt respond.

i can't just download it ilegally? :P or would that count for as the same since i have the legit key for it?

i'm using the hdd with windows 8 on it and all it gives me is the windows loader with option to boot windows 7.

How did you install it in the first place and why wouldn't you save the media?

Plug back in the Win7 drive, install EasyBCD to it to add Windows 8 to a Dual Boot menu.

Then run Windows 8 Automatic Repair using one of the methods from within Windows 8.

Once it completes try booting the Win8 drive via BIOS Boot menu key.

Post back Disk Mgmt screenshot from Win7 and Win8.

Is that what it says in Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7 or in the link that Golden posted earlier?

You're in this position because you jumped around on steps that were laid out quite clearly for you in a specified order.

Have you tried to repair Windows 8 yet?
