Thank you Rodion, that worked for me. I was running dual boot Win 7 & Ubuntu on a dual HDD laptop. I installed Win 8 Pro over the Ubuntu OS and was enjoying my Win 8 metro boot screen, only I got tired of seeing my 3rd option of the uninstalled Linux option to boot into, so I removed it using easyBCD 2.2, clicked save, rebooted and poof gone, back to black and white win 7 boot manager. I found this thread and followed Rodion's instructions. I booted into Win 8 > opened easyBCD > Selected "Useful Utilities" > Selected "EasyBCD Power Console" > ran command bcdboot c:\windows > I then rebooted and was pleasantly surprised to see my Win 8 Metro boot screen. Hope this helps others. Thanks again!
