    Question How to get a clean uninstall of EasyBCD

    Hello,

    Your program works great, but now I want to remove it. How do I get the text removed from the boot sequence? Meaning to say, when I boot up my computer see a lot of text put into the boot sequence by EasyBCD. Even after a clean Vista install and flashing the BIOS the text is still there.

    Thanks

    Hi Gnostradamus, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

    I'm not sure what text you're referring to - can you tell us what you see?

    EasyBCD does not install itself to the bootloader, rather it uses the already-installed Windows Vista Bootloader, so I'm not sure what you're seeing.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your reply. The text flashes by quite quickly, I can make out : REBOOTING GDLR ....
    So I don't know, but isn't that something to do with GRUB?

    That sounds like a GRUB thing. Which isnt releated to EasyBCD since that isntalls NeoGRUB. Which is totally different. So it sounds like you did a Linux install and the GRUB entries are still there.

    Yep. While EasyBCD does have an implementation of GRUB called NeoGrub, it does not touch the bootloader and rather gets called by the Vista bootloader if you add a NeoGrub entry.

    However, you wouldn't see it at startup without actually selecting this NeoGrub entry from the Vista boot menu.

    You should use the Vista DVD to reinstall the MBR:
