    EASY RE WON'T BOOT WINDOWS 7

    I have no experience with the EasyRE software, never having had cause to use it, so can't help you with that unfortunately (This is a user peer to peer forum not actually connected with Neosmart except for the admin user account Mqudsi. Don't be confused by "staff member", that's just a whim of...

    EasyBCD 2.3 Timeout Keeps Changing

    Have you just installed the latest W10 patches ? It has an annoying habit of messing with the boot settings, recently it turned "fast boot" on again without my knowledge or consent. If you don't know why that's a problem, read Windows 8 (or 10) boot problems ? Please read this before posting

    EASY RE WON'T BOOT WINDOWS 7

    ? Did you follow the instructions regarding creation of a bootable device ? The EasyRE download is an ISO (disk image) designed to be burned directly to a CD and booted from there. You can also use a USB flashdrive but it must be made bootable using something like Creating a bootable USB with...

    EasyBCD 2.3 Timeout Keeps Changing

    There's nothing in that field so that's not your problem in this case, but to answer your last question by "live" I mean the BCD that was actually used to boot your PC. If you install multiple Windows separately (i.e. not with others installed and visible at the time), they will each have a BCD...

    EasyBCD 2.3 Timeout Keeps Changing

    Check EasyBCD > Tools > settings to make sure there's nothing in the "automatically load....." field. It could be that you're not actually changing the "live" BCD, but altering the settings in a BCD on one of the other systems (assuming that they were all installed independently and each has a BCD)

    4 disk drives will not boot

    I think the chump is someone who wrecks his one working OS instead of fixing the broken ones. You'll find a lot of help here for anyone even moderately polite, but with your attitude I imagine you don't inspire sympathy in any walk of life. Closing this thread

    4 disk drives will not boot

    Just trying to give you some advice so that you don't make a similar cock-up in future - but if you don't want any (and you just seem to want to blame someone else for your mistake), then I'll leave you to stew in your own juices. Good luck with that.

    4 disk drives will not boot

    FYI Disk letters are not "real". They do not exist except in the mind (the registry) of the OS reporting them. Hence any repair medium (an OS in its own right) will assign letters to drives/partitions as it detects them. (That includes MS W7 repair disk and indeed the installation DVD itself)...

    Anyone have any advice about: I thought I followed the online instructions, but still can't make a bootable HD. Am I missing a step or more?

    If you're repairing a broken boot with a W7 repair disc (or the installation DVD) or in your case a repair USB, you need to boot it and "startup repair" three times. It has multiple thing to repair and only does one at a time. (no idea why!) Try that first. If still no-go, can you describe the...

    amazing, baffling, and totally abstruse

    If you currently go through two boot menus (select XP from W7 bootmgr, then choose which XP from NTLDR), you can simplify to a single menu with both XPs listed in bootmgr's menu by using the link in my previous post.

    amazing, baffling, and totally abstruse

    The boot menu you are seeing is from NTLDR on XP. You cannot add W7 to that as an option. It's incapable of booting any Windows newer than itself. You must add XP entries to W7's bootbgr's BCD. The problem seems to be that your OEM's BIOS will not allow switching boot disks. I wasn't aware that...

    Windows pc 10

    If you are referring to EasyBCD features "greyed" out in UEFI, that's simply because those features are not possible on a UEFI PC. Sorry - nothing you (or EasyBCD) can do about it.

    Missing IOS?

    You don't unzip anything. The download is the ISO. If it appears to be a RAR file or similar, it's probably because you've let some 3rd party software take control of your file associations and/or you have the default Windows option of "don't display filetypes"
