    Default Boot Config Guidance

    I want to confirm my understanding from the documentation and posts that I have read. I have one Hard drive with two partitions. Vista is on the first, primary drive(C). If I imaged another OS onthe second partition(F), then in EasyBCD for the new OS entry I would point to the NST folder on the primary(C) partition rather than the secondary partition(f). Is this correct?

    If it is correct, how does the system know to boot to the secondary Partition(F) if it is not referenced?

    I wanted to confirm this before setting it up and breaking something.

    Thanks

    Hi fletch, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

    The answer to this question depends on the nature of the new OS image that you would like to add. Is it XP or Vista? Linux or OS X?

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    The image is OS X.

    Thanks for the help.

    Well, when you install EasyBCD and add an OS X entry; what happens is EasyBCD's bootloader program will actually search your hard drive for an HFS+ (OS X) partition when you attempt to boot into it, and load it up.

    Be careful: not always does imaging an OS X partition do the trick. You have to image the bootsector as well; not just the files on it.
