i made two install of win 8 and one of kubuntu that are well working .
i used a drive with every os , with the others not connected to prevent errors and be more easy to select the one i want to boot .

by now i would like to clean my efi boot partitions because after testing ubuntu and removing it for kubuntu , i have two entry for them while one is no longer valid .
i also would like to select between the two win8 without having to get in the bios .

at least , if someone knows how to turn win8 vga menu selector to the text one used by win7 . i ll be glad .

here is a 4 x 1440 x 900 : http://i.imgur.com/oMkPZb5.jpg

Can do it: Windows 8 Switch Boot is a tiny utility by means of which it is possible to return the menu of a choice of operating systems as to Windows 7.

i ll try it and that should help me to quickly find the good parameters .
if you look at the picture you see that there is only one entry for win 8 : the one from the boot disk , but no info for the second may be because they use same bootloader command

in the menu you also see two entry for ubuntu , that are fully written :

for ubuntu i have two :
BCD ID: {4418fe06-695a-11e2-b3d1-806e6f6e6963}
Bootloader Path: EFI\Ubuntu\grubx64.efi

how can i find the BCD ID of the drives or the "Device:" parameter ?

Maybe cmd -----> bcdedit /enum all ?

But you have 3 efi sys partitions ????
And the bcd you're booting from is on volume 15?

thank you: that command lists a lot of lines , that looks not easy to mix them in one menu , like my bios do with its boot menu ;']
