Dear All

I have upgraded my version of Windows to Windows 8 after test driving windows 8 using a tutorial published in HTG (http://www.howtogeek.com/107535/how-to-seamlessly-dual-boot-windows-7-and-windows-8-the-easy-way/).

After upgrading to Windows 8 some of my applications are not working.

Now I want to Dual boot windows 7 with Windows 8...

Please advice...

I tried the same tutorial but this time I created VHD for windows 7--- it works till reboot but then mysteriously the VHD I had created disappears again and again and hence I cannot boot into windows 7.

My harddisk shows "dynamic disk".. can this be the problem ??

You can't boot an OS from a dynamic disk. Try the free bootable version of this, to change it,
