Windows 8.0 new dual boot GUI disappeared and replaced with text menu after installing updated 8.0 and 8.1

I upgraded my windows xp to windows 8.0 and my windows 7 to windows 8.1 for a dual boot environment. I am using BCDEDIT program. I had no problem when booting to the GUI menu OF WINDOWS 8 when I first INSTALLED Windows 8. But after the second time
I booted from a cold start it defaulted back to the old text version of the dual boot menu from the old windows xp and 7 . I have tried many times to restore the boot mgr TO GET BACK THE WINDOWS 8 GUI but I can't seem to put my
finger on the root cause remedy  that would over-ride the default TEXT VERSION STYLE. I really like the Windows 8 GUI interface. Remember I am not having any problems with booting into the OS of my choice ----- just the BOOTMENUPOLICY.
Here is where I need to resolve the new from the old command. By the way Does the Bcdedit program need to be installed in both OS'S? And when original Windows 7 was installed the os partitioned a Boot 100mb. I cannot remove or delete it in my Disk Management.
Just some other tidbits to ponder from any help I would appreciate.
Thanks
Michael

The best answer: Hi,
What's the status of your current system boot option? Please check and make sure Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 was first boot.
