Re: Unable to boot Windows 7 after installing Windows Developer Preview

It is risky, but the only solution that I know of is to replace the Windows 7 Boot loader with the Windows 8 one. You can do this task by following below process:
  • First start command prompt as admin and try to Navigate to C:\Windows\System32
  • In the next step is Mount Windows 8 .iso file with suitable .iso mounting tool.
  • Go into bcdboot.exe V:\Windows.
This process helps to update the BIOS to utilize the Windows 8 boot loader. This is the process that works to set proper booting process onto your system and in response it will be solve your booting or loading problem.

Re: Unable to boot Windows 7 after installing Windows Developer Preview

Probably a it is VERY bad idea to install the windows Development preview with existing windows 7. In that case, sometimes there is collision appears onto this booting process. For your information this windows 8 development previews is not completely finished OS and hence there is not any fix strategy that say that this will be work on dual boot system.
