Wow, I am stuck. I have Win 7 Ultimate build 7600 on OS primary partition and Win 8 Pro build 9200 on a second primary partition. I previously had the preview and was removed. I now get a recovery window when starting Win 8 at startup(Win 7 starts fine). I did a clean install and reformatted even removed partition - ran disk check etc... and recreated the partition. I have installed Win 8 off of a flash, the install flash is good cause I was able to install on another computer. When installing on the other computer it took me to the activation screen which I did not get in the partition installation. It's almost as if it recognized the previous install of the preview. Yes I have used EasyBCD and ran the bootrec/ commands hoping this would help, did not. I do not think this issue has anything to do with the boot loader, I do however think there is something now stuck in Win 7(an .ini, .dat or some other file/registry entry) causing the problem from the preview install. I have read the Win 8 loader takes over from Win 7, if this is true is the loader now being used residing in Win 7 and has 7's been replaced(in Win 7) with the Win 8 loader from the Win 8 install? Yes, I even tried the mighty EasyBCD v2.2 to no avail. Confusing to say the least. So, does anybody have any thoughts on this issue? I have been scouring the net and have not seen anyone else with this problem, YET! I'm sure there will be others to follow with same issue. Thank's ahead of time for the help.
