    [EBCD-526] EasyBCD does not find Windows XP install

    Some additional info - I can add my backup Win8 install on D1, P1 to the UEFI boot menu (on D0) with EasyBCD. Note that D1 is a MBR-formatted disk. When I am in the UEFI boot menu (on D0), I can select either my Win7 install (on D0, P3) or my Win 8 install (on D0, P4), and both boot fine...

    [EBCD-526] EasyBCD does not find Windows XP install

    You are correct Terry in that I am running XP x86 and I can boot the the XP install via BIOS. I will check in periodically for further guidance. Thanks again.

    [EBCD-526] EasyBCD does not find Windows XP install

    Windows XP does not allow access to GPT disks for me. Therefore, I would not be able to assign a drive letter and point EasyBCD to the BCD store on the GPT disk. I did try several things manually. From my Win 7 install, I put the Windows XP ntldr, boot.ini, and ntdectect.com in the...

    I have a Win 7 and Win 8.1 dual UEFI boot on a GPT disk (Disk 0). I installed Windows XP on an MBR disk (Disk 2). When I try to add an XP boot entry with EasyBCD (running on the Win 7 install), I get an error that EasyBCD failed to detect a valid installation of Windows NT-2003 on all mounted...

    Problem with dual boot Win7 and Win8 install on UEFI system

    Terry, I want to thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I actually got the dual boot of windows 7/8 working perfectly, but it certainly wasn't easy. Basically, I did the following: - Backup Win 7 install (working) and Win 8 install (not working) - Re-install clean Win 8 from DVD...

    Problem with dual boot Win7 and Win8 install on UEFI system

    Terry, Thank you for your quick response. I tried your suggestion of replacing the Win7 winload.efi file with the Win8 winload.efi file. After messing around with permissions, I copied the Win 8 file over to the Win 7 \Windows\System32 folder. I tried to reboot into Windows 8, but it gave me...

    Problem with dual boot Win7 and Win8 install on UEFI system

    I built a new system and installed Win7 on a new SSD. The system is UEFI capable, and I performed the Win7 install with UEFI boot. I created another partition on the SSD, and I transferred a Win8 install from a hard drive (with MBR and BIOS boot) to the newly created partition on the SSD. I used...

    [FIXED] EasyBCD 2.0.1 writes boot.ini to wrong partition

    Yes, I did. Regarding Harddisk1, Partition 3, that is the Linux install with Ext4 (iirc) file system. Windows wouldn't recognize that, right? edit: Oh, I see. It looks like bootgrabber is returning Disk(1)Partition(5) for that one ...

    [FIXED] EasyBCD 2.0.1 writes boot.ini to wrong partition

    Actually, I have a 7(SSD)-XP(SSD)-7(HD)-XP(HD)-Linux(HD) install when booted from the SSD, and I have a 7(HD)-XP(HD)-7(SSD)-XP(SSD)-Linux(HD) install when booted from the HD. Both boot without a second menu for all installs (except, of course, for the Linux install). FYI, my installs are...
