Using Windows Boot Manager

Now that your system can boot to one or more operating systems other than Windows 8, you need to know how to control your OSs. You do this using the Windows Boot Manager, which is a menu of the operating systems installed on your PC.

By default, Windows Boot Manager appears automatically when you start your PC. However, you can also invoke Windows Boot Manager from within Windows 8 itself by following these steps:

1. Press Windows Logo+I to open the Settings pane and then click Change PC Settings.

2. Click the General tab.

3. Under the Advanced Startup heading, click Restart Now. The Choose an Option screen appears.

4. Click Use Another Operating System. The Choose an Operating System screen appears, which is the Windows 8 version of Windows Boot Manager.

The screen you see depends on your dual-boot setup. For example, if you’re dual-booting with Windows 7 or Windows Vista (or both), you see a screen similar to the one shown in Figure 2.


Figure 2. If you’re dual-booting Windows 8 with either (or both) Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you use this startup screen to choose which operating system you want to load.

If you’re dual-booting with Windows XP or earlier, you see a screen similar to the one shown in Figure 3. Again, notice that the BCD simply refers to the legacy OS as “Earlier Version of Windows.”


Figure 3. If you’re dual-booting Windows 8 with Windows XP or earlier, you use this startup screen to select an operating system to boot.

If you invoke Windows Boot Manager at startup and you do nothing at this point, Windows Boot Manager will automatically boot the default OS—usually Windows 8—after 30 seconds. Otherwise, you click the operating system you want to boot.
