    Right click on start icon, select Command Prompt (Admin). In the command prompt window run:

    BCDBOOT E:\Windows /d /addlast

    The path in red is to the Windows folder of your Windows 7 installation. You'll have to do it for each Windows 7 partition you want to add. Then restart the computer.

    You can press the Windows + R keys to open a run dialog. Enter: msconfig

    Select the boot tab and you can adjust the timeout of the boot menu.
