Hey everyone...

I'm trying to figure out how to creat a BOOTMGR file for my Seagate External HDD as I just reformatted it so I can use it to run a mini version of Windows 8 on it. Will 8 create the BOOTMGR file for me or will I have to create it myself?

My System


When you install Windows 8 it installs the Bootfile for you. But there is no Mini version of Windows 8. If you want to Dual Boot then try Easy BCD to manage your os's. If you just want to test drive Windows 8 without fully installing it. Then use a Virtual Machine (VM) like Virtual PC or VirtualBox and install Windows 8 into the VM and run that from your C: drive
