Hi guys,

I currently have a 500gb quite heavily partitioned running XP, Vista, and 7 quite nicely, and I don't have a problem running any of them. However, I have got my hands on the RTM for Windows 8, and I had a bit of spare space, so I thought I'd add that to my dual boot setup.

However, once the setup completes It doesn't show up in the bootloader, and I am reluctant to play around with it too much, with the fear of corrupting my working Operating systems, since I use all of them equally and I don't want to corrupt anything.

How would I get Windows 8 to show up in the bootloader, and if this applies how would I upgrade my bootloader from Vista's one to Windows 8's bootloader without loosing all my operating systems?

Thanks
