    Default 2 SATA partitions with Windows 7 on each. Can a boot loader be added in hindsight?

    Hi all,

    I've searched the net but no specific answer to that question. If possible I'd like to dual-boot as each partition has a different end purpose. I know, I should have done the boot loader thing at the start Any ideas please share. Thanks!

    I presume that you can boot into one of the Windows? If you can, install 'Macrium Reflex 7 free', then select 'repair windows loader'. It will scan the drive for wndows OS's, and list them. OK. Reboot. The loader will be repaired, and display a selection list.

    EasyBCD can do it as well.

    Thank you mzee and dugimodo! I'll try those and see what happens. Easybcd seems quite a useful prog as I'm already running Aomei and Esaeus partition managers.

    Cheers
