I installed Windows 7 and 8 on two seperate HD's. My windows 8 has an uefi bootmanger and boots straight to windows 8. I was trying to change boot order in window 8 boot menu but it doesn't give me the option to change default to windows 7 so I could have option to boot to either or on startup. Could you help me please. Thanks.

Try doing the steps in: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 10%29.aspx ... only pretend Vista is 7 and 7 is 8.

Does it matter the if I have both pro versions of win7 and 8 to use EasyBCD free version? I see that on the commerical version it works on pro and enterprise. But since i only need it to fix boot menu problems. will the free version still work for that problem?

The free version of EasyBCD should work fine for you. I'm a fan, I've used it for a few different things, works a treat. If you have any problems using it post back. (Actually, it's nice when people post back when something works, too.)
