Question: How could i manage the triple boot setup rshaffer mentioned? I have tried to get Win7 and Win8 to work together, but it always boots to windows 8. The only way i can go to win7 is to "boot bypass" in the bios. If anyone can tell me how i could do this, it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm running Win8 with Avast with no problems. It still updates at least twice a day and I am very happy with it. The other 3 computers running in my house use Win7 and XP with MSE installed.
I haven't been this excited waiting for Win8 since XP was released. Win7 took some time for me to warm up to but now with a triple boot setup I have XP, Win7 and Win8 all running flawlessly with XP.
I think short of the Metro and having to use a 3rd party like ViStart to get the old start button in Win8 I think it will be a great OS but there will always be those who keep the blinders on to the Metro being a pain in the tail side and won't go to Win8.
Windows Defender though good I have never been a fan of it.
Windows 7/8 Dual-Boot

First partition I installed XP Pro.
Second partition I installed Win7 Pro.
Lastly I installed Win 8 Beta on the third partition and Win8 setup the bootmgr so I have the option of which OS I want to boot to. Using Essexboy's method I was able to change the default OS to Win8 so that I would boot automatically into it without manually having to chose it.
