No, it's not your system. Well, it is, but the new version of EasyBCD 1.51 will fix it anyway :smile:
I grabbed the linux patch ( and copied the nst_grub.mbr file to the c:\nst folder. Upon reboot and selecting the linux option I get 'GRUB Geom Error' and it halts. Is there a way to edit the mbr file?

I'm booting Vista, XP, OSX, and Ubuntu. All work fine except the Ubuntu.

Here's my partitions from DISKPART

Partition ### Type Size Offset

Partition 2 Primary 34GB 47MB (XP)
Partition 1 Primary 22GB 34GB (VISTA)
Partition 0 Extended 19GB 56GB (Linux)
Partition 4 Logical 17GB 56GB (ext3)
Partition 5 Logical 2GB 73GB (swap)
Partition 3 Primary 19GB 75GB (OSX)

Please advise, I can give more information if need be.

Thanks in advance.
