After installing Win8 on an empty HD -- and after having installed Win7 on its own drive -- the "option" to boot from one drive or the other does not appear as it should.  I can boot Win8 from the full installation disk I have, and change the boot order in bios, but there is no easy way to make a choice between the OSs.

 

Someone suggested I use EasyBCD to sort things out, but I'm not sure how to do it and I don't want to jeopardize my ability to boot Win7 by screwing it up.

 

Any/all suggestions appreciated.

Thanks for the help with EasyBCD.  I managed to get things going without it, though.
