    Quad boot Vista, XP, W7 and Ubuntu using HnS to protect system restore points from XP

    Hi Terry Long time no speak, so to say. I now have a problem and you are the only person I can think of to help! The laptop I use to do my triple booting broke late last year due to a problem with the Nvidea GPU. After much hair pulling out and many other things, I now have it back and...

    Quad boot Vista, XP, W7 and Ubuntu using HnS to protect system restore points from XP

    Hi Terry Help please! My XP partition got corrupted and I had to do a full re-install as the Repair function wouldn't work. I have now got it all sorted but I can't get HnS to reinstall properly. I have tried to delete Bootmgr.hns, but my windows 7 64 keeps saying that I need trudted...

    Can you point me to the registry hack so I can see if I want to go down that route?

    Thanks all - So if I still want to protect Windows 7 restore points from Windows XP, I assume I need to still use hns?! I thought could always see the XP drive in Windows 7 - it was the Windows 7/Vista drive I couldn't see in Windows XP as it was hidden to prevent XP overwriting the Windows...

    Hi Terry Just seen that EasyBCD 2 is now out. Does it now do what hns does? Gareth

    Quad boot Vista, XP, W7 and Ubuntu using HnS to protect system restore points from XP

    Hi Installed Vista SP2 last night and lost the ability to boot from HnS. I have tried to re-install HnS. It says it is uninstalled but when I go to reinstall, it doesn't put the appropriate files in the Vista drive (or anywhere else that I can see) and I get the following debug message...

    I'm quite happy to have it in its own partition, but it needs to be on one of my external drives as I have run out of partitions on my internal hard drive. Why would I want it to be on a .vhd as opposed to a partition on my external hd?

    Don't understand what a .vhd container is? Can you please explain?! Thanks Gareth

    Quad boot Vista, XP, W7 and Ubuntu using HnS to protect system restore points from XP

    Thanks Terry - Thought I was missing a trick with some special boot arrngement you had. Ubuntu will ignore any securtiy instructions that are setup for XP/Vista and I assume RC7. So you don't need to set up the unhide feature when you boot Ubuntu. A couple of questions if I may? 1. Can I...

    Hi Terry Regarding the need to use unhide with Ubuntu. Is their something different about you boot arrangements? I have found that I don't need to do the unhide arrangement. Gareth

    Thanks Jus and Terry. Now understand the problem with HnS and Ubuntu. Still, it is the best way I have yet found to triple boot and preserve all the recovery points. For a method similar to the way that it worked with Ubuntu 8.04/10, will have to wait for CG to do an update to HnS I guess.

    Quad boot Vista, XP, W7 and Ubuntu using HnS to protect system restore points from XP

    Justin Thanks for your advice. I agree with you this will do what you say. But it does not get me back to where I was when CG helped me about a year ago. When I copied the instructions from the Ubuntu 8.04/10 menu into the HnS menu.lst, I did not need to do this. I copied the entries into...

    booting Ubuntu 9.04 Hi Terry Thanks for this. This got my Ubuntu 9.04 up and running. A couple of points though. First - Using this technique gets Ubuntu up and running. Thank you! However, it means that there is a double menu. You get the HnS menu and then you get the grub menu which...
