Windows 7: Restored Windows Back Up To Another Partition Of Dual Boot Drive

25 Oct 2014   #61


If that's all that was done to change from the modern menu, then did you try changing 8 back to default in EasyBCD?

Just an update Greg,

For other reasons, I reformatted Windows 8 including its system reserved disk but the Windows 7 remains in D untouched. When Windows 8 was completed installing, I used EasyBCD instead of Windows 7 installation disc to boot the D. It was very easy to use the app for the second time and also I can edit the entries whatever name I want to appear in boot menu. It's modern boot menu now with two OS.

Anyway, I did not try to change back its default boot menu in EasyBCD as quoted your reply. I wish I had time to try it.

I'm wondering if I can make a copy/paste of Windows 7/8 in a partition without using any apps, then just use the EasyBCD to boot. This curiosity came into my mind since I had an error when creating image using the app in my system. Maybe I'm going to try it in the future.

The performance has performed good as well as programs running in my system.

If the Disk Mgmt is different now than the one you posted earlier, please post back another one.
