    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    I made that post many moons ago and evidently someone "fixed" the code so that I can't do that anymore. Sadly, I miss that option. It sure was handy to merely hit the ESC key on my keyboard and auto boot to Linux from Windows like that. I rather wish I had that on my work station right now. I...

    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    Thank you Terry. I think I found my towel. I have "Escape to Linux" back again but alas, I have to wait about 30 seconds for it to load now after hitting the ESC key. Version 2.4 on the Win 7 side of things seems to be part of the equation. Now the real test will be to see if I can run it...

    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    And yet I did it. And I did it for days on end. Such a pity that I can't replicate it. For whatever reason chain loading failed all three o/s and I could not use it, but putting EBCD 2.3 on Win 7 and EBCD 2.4 on 8 did allow me this configuration for about a week before it crashed for whatever...

    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    So, for example, in the BIOS, if I select "Other OS" instead of UEFI I'm still in UEFI mode after rebooting? How does that work? Sorry, I'm a novice in this regard, I guess, despite the fact that I've put together hundreds of PCs. *edit* I've been fiddling with EBCD some more, using combinations...

    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    I get grey out even when I'm not in UEFI mode. I've checked the BIOS many times. I think perhaps the registry might be corrupt. Uninstalling Easy BCD makes no change. When the system behaved as it did in the video I presented the BIOS was set to boot to Legacy first and UEFI as default. It...

    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    Thankyou so much for your prompt reply. I'm a little reluctant to attempt chainloading again because I lost the boot straps to all three o/s that way the last time I tried it using Super Grub 2. In the end I had to reinstall all the operating systems because not even Windows repair disks could...

    ESCAPE TO LINUX

    I recently stumbled upon something that was very convenient for me and my daughter. Alas, I can no longer recreate this effect (although I had duplicated it to my satisfaction many times previous) and I would like to be able to do it again. If someone in your team of illustrious technology...

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    Thank you NeoSmart for making this lovely little device. I no longer have to look at ugly descriptions of my fabulously unique and personalized operating systems every time I boot up my PC. Not to mention how it will inadvertently clear up other annoyances. Good work and great job! *double...
