    [FIXED] [EBCD-505] GRUB 2 wrongly using /boot/grub/ instead of /boot/grub2/

    OK, I have now had a chance to download and try your EasyBCD 2.2 Build 179. First I did not rename /boot/grub-old/ back to /boot/grub/, i.e. I had two directories /boot/grub-old/ and /boot/grub2/. I booted into Windows, ran EasyBCD 2.2 Build 179 and created a new entry by selecting 'GRUB2' from...

    [FIXED] [EBCD-505] GRUB 2 wrongly using /boot/grub/ instead of /boot/grub2/

    That is the same directory structure as Fedora uses (at least Fedora 17 does, but maybe some other Linux distributions do too). In Gentoo, the subdirectory name is different according to the platform (see GRUB2 - Gentoo Wiki). For standard BIOS with MBR and x86/x86_64(amd64) CPU, the...

    [FIXED] [EBCD-505] GRUB 2 wrongly using /boot/grub/ instead of /boot/grub2/

    OK, will do. (And thanks for the tip about not needing to delete entries: I had not realised that.)

    [FIXED] [EBCD-505] GRUB 2 wrongly using /boot/grub/ instead of /boot/grub2/

    Thanks very much. I also have some interesting news: your first reply got me thinking about a workaround for my situation. Your earlier reply was that: a) If I were to select 'GRUB2' from the drop-down menu, EasyBCD would look for core.img in some sub-directories in /boot/ and set up the...

    [FIXED] [EBCD-505] GRUB 2 wrongly using /boot/grub/ instead of /boot/grub2/

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I did select "GRUB2" from the drop-down in EasyBCD. Gentoo does support having both GRUB 2 and GRUB Legacy packages installed. The GRUB Legacy files are placed in the /boot/grub/ directory and the GRUB 2 files are placed in the /boot/grub2/ directory. The command...

    [FIXED] [EBCD-505] GRUB 2 wrongly using /boot/grub/ instead of /boot/grub2/

    Hi. Having used EasyBCD 2.0.2 successfully a couple of years ago to set up my laptop to dual boot between Windows 7 and Gentoo Linux, I am now having a problem and am not sure if the cause is Gentoo, GRUB 2 or EasyBCD. The laptop has the following partitions: sda1 Windows factory restore...

    The Introduction Thread

    Just to say "Hi". Have joined the forum in order to try the beta of EasyBCD 2 now that the Linux distribution I use (Sabayon Linux) has switched to Grub2. I am looking forward to trying out EasyBCD to see if it lives up to the high praise I have been reading in some Internet forums.
