    Let EasyBCD "find" and "display" all bootable partitions

    Currently, we can only manually edit and add entries to EasyBCD. I wonder whether such an option will be possible to be added - that would let EasyBCD go thorough all partitions in all HDDs - and find out which hdd/ partitions have bootable o.s. - along with the name of the o.s. (xp, w7-8-10...

    easyBCD: give options for specifying drive paths

    However I still feel that showing volume names will help the users recognize the partition correctly and without errors or doubt. I have named my two hdds as A and B and then have added 1,2,3,4 for four partitions in each. and then I have added Windows assigned drive letter that windows...

    easyBCD: give options for specifying drive paths

    You wrote "the contents of the BCD appear to change between OSs when in fact it's the same BCD with identical content." Actually, that was my exact problem, that I was trying to address, and I didn't of the above. I mean, I have two 1TB hdds, each having 4 MBR. first is having w8-32 bit, and...

    easyBCD: give options for specifying drive paths

    easyBCD asks us to specify Drive path of varies O.S. that we have on current disk(s). I find it confusing. Whenever we boot from different o.s., window has some cryptic system of assigning drive letters to them, which is definitely not in the sequence of hard disks and also not in sequence of...

    Not able to boot from 1 TB w8 HDD.

    have a look at the enclosed "disk management" shot. I don't recall what I did at the time of installation, but today, the problem exists that I am dependent on both drives to be able to boot up. If I remove 40 GB I just can't boot into w8/w7. 40 GB is a decade old and might die any day and...

    I have 1 TB HDD having w8 I have another 40GB HDD having w7. When 1 TB HDD is selected as first hdd to boot from, it doesn't boot. There is some error message right at the start and nothing proceeds. When 40 GB HDD is selected as first hdd to boot from, it duly proceeds to boot from w8...

    XP install on a Win7 HDD: can't boot into win7

    Hi Terry, I wasn't able to boot into w7 so I ran easybcd as above in xp, and did some tweaking. Whatever had happened, my current feeble boot method also stopped working and I wasn't able to boot into any of the three os (win7 on c, xp2009 on d, xp2009 on e). Was not left with any option but to...
