Dual boot windows 8 and Ubuntu with Windows 8 Boot manager

Is it possible to use Windows 8 loader to choose what I want to do next: to start Windows 8 or to chainload GRUB with Ubuntu and Debian? I have no UEFI, so a master boot record is used

I used a program that is called EasyBCD. It works, but using this program I get a DOS-style loader(black and white one which looks the same as win7 loader) instead of the shiny blue Win8 one.

I have a desire to use Windows 8 loader, not Grub or Win7-like loader. How to do this? I have seen this screenshot, so I assume that this is possible: http://tipsfromgeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Windows-8-triple-boot-with-Windows-7-and-Ubuntu.jpg

  • The chance to get that is very slim. The win 8 bootloader isn't actual bootloader. It's a pre boot environment. Once you selected the OS, it reboot the system and load the selected OS directly. So give a try in above link, you may also get blue bootloader at first go,later it can turn into Dos Style loader. Nothing can be done. – Web-E Jan 22 '13 at 12:51
  • Well, looks like that's it. I'll try this. Thanks! – Max Malysh Jan 22 '13 at 12:54
  • Well, when following this guide EasyBCD creates an "AutoNeoGrub0.mbr" file on the 350mb "System Reserved" partition. And again I get black and white loader without GUI. – Max Malysh Jan 22 '13 at 19:59
