    ISO boot - locate ISO on HD

    Apparently you can't. I asked this question a couple years ago and the dev said "interesting suggestion"! What .iso file(s) EasyBCD uses

    Need help re: "active" partitions?

    Terry60 thank you so much. I had surfed long and hard on this question and yours is the most succinct and understandable summary of the partition "options" that I have (never) found! It even answers the subtler question I had when you state: It's of no significance OR CONSEQUENCE unless...

    Need help re: "active" partitions?

    I have been having disk problems lately and noticed in Windows Disk Management that all of my drives (3 HDD and 1 RAMDisk) are shown as Healthy (Active, Primary Partition). My C: drive shows as Healthy (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition). I do not have the extra...

    What .iso file(s) EasyBCD uses

    I have asked about this before to no response, and I notice there is a new Beta available but I do not see this at least in the description (I've not tried it yet) so: EasyBCD does not currently allow the user to find-out after-the-fact what .iso file is being pointed-to, and where it is...

    How to safely rid my Drive 0 of Win XP64 in favor of Win 7

    Thanks Terry60 for the explanation. I had tried only "Change boot drive" i.e. thinking it'd copy from the still-good spinner to the won't-boot SSD and that didn't work & then I did the easiest next thing (the repair disk). I don't understand this stuff well enough in the first place, much less...

    How to safely rid my Drive 0 of Win XP64 in favor of Win 7

    I restored the image of the W7 partition, the one that had been set by EasyBCD using the "Change boot drive" under Backup/Repair, to my SSD and it booted perfectly. But then I found that the SSD was not "aligned" properly and after I re-aligned it with the MiniTool Partition Wizard it would no...

    How to safely rid my Drive 0 of Win XP64 in favor of Win 7

    Thank you Terry60--I looked and looked and didn't find that page you linked-to. My W7 partition already reads as "System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition"--yikes I just went thru my old notes and it seems I used EasyBCD 2.0 b76 ALMOST FIVE YEARS AGO NOW to change the boot...

    How to safely rid my Drive 0 of Win XP64 in favor of Win 7

    Well I'd have thought this was an easy question for the experts here. I think what I am going to do, which may greatly simplify things, is to take an image backup of the W7 partition and image-it back (restore) it to an SSD. Then I will just pull the dual-boot drive and deal with the SSD alone...

    How to safely rid my Drive 0 of Win XP64 in favor of Win 7

    I installed Windows 7 on a PC that was running XP Pro 64-bit such that the first partition is the old XP and the 2nd is the newer Windows 7. I later used EasyBCD to make W7 the preferred boot OS. According to this link: Multibooters, Vista Dual and Multibooting - A Guide to the Multiboot...

    Boot Menu points to .iso file, but where is iso file?

    I can't tell if Computer Guru is posting here these days, but hopefully someone will see this that knows the answer to my question?

    Boot Menu points to .iso file, but where is iso file?

    OK, but....booting to an .iso is one of EasyBCD's coolest features Terry! :D I'll look for this thread and bump it again after a while, thanks.

    Boot Menu points to .iso file, but where is iso file?

    No it is not. At least, while I know the filename includes "iso" and "acronis" I find nothing using HxD Hex Editor's Search feature. It seems you are guessing at the answer!?!

    Boot Menu points to .iso file, but where is iso file?

    Yes. The path to my .iso files is not shown in that view, or any other (that I can find anyway). Example, where the iso for Acronis is on my D: drive, regular view: Entry #4 Name: Acronis True Image 2013 BCD ID: {20cf5131-0840-11df-a041-00218559c7b0} Drive: C:\ Bootloader Path...

    Boot Menu points to .iso file, but where is iso file?

    I've used EasyBCD 2.2 to add a Boot Menu entry for an .iso file, and it works fine, but when I found that I could not remember where exactly the .iso file is that this entry points to, I could not find this out anywhere in EasyBCD. Did I miss something obvious? How to find out where the ISO...
