    Windows 10 - 0xc0000428 Boot error

    (says cannot verify signature on \windows\system32\winload.efi but that cant be true, valid windows file and signed..) Hi Using MDT, we placed a windows 10 image on the 2nd ssd drive. I used easibcd 2.3 to add the boot to the win 10 e: drive. As you can see this has an EFI boot partition for...

    Detect More Issues

    Some feedback on an issue with win 8.1. boot. It took me many hours to resolve but it is the type of thing EASIBCD could easily detect, let along fix. Context: Added SDD added to a laptop which had a win 7 OS and normal win 7 reserve area (MBR, not GPT) A reserve partition + win 8.1 OS was...

    EASIBCD 2.3 Bug Fix - Feature

    Fair enough, but surely the tool can detect you have the wrong manager > e.g. allow the pull down to have win 7, win 8, win 8.1 entries. Look at the bootmgr version and issue a warning ? THink of it, the end user does not know an issue exists, they use the tool to fix boot. As a coder myself...

    GPT Support

    Hyper-v - Normal MBR disk is no problem to hyper-v. A GPT seems to be an issue yet the Hyper-V Gen 2 doco suggests it is supported. EasiBCD can fix a MBR disk to be bootable, I assume that if a MBR disk existed with no reserve partition, this would not be an issue "bcdboot c:\windows /s C:" will...

    GPT Support

    Update The Beta EASyBCD version works on a GPT VHDx, it booted. Hyper-V results : Gen 1 - Treats VHDx as IDE file, result "Boot failure" message Gen 2 - Treats VHDx as SCSI file, "Boot failed, EFI SCSI Device, No operating system was loaded" Now this might be out of scope for your roadmap or...

    GPT Support

    >> OK using the Beta made a difference. I now have sysprep issues (popups) so I am going to do a fresh save to ensure the original image was not syspreped by me. >> What I would like some guidance on if the GPT VHDx can be made Hyper-v enabled ? (now you may consider this outside your scope...

    GPT Support

    In the past with Windows 7, I could use the built in "wbadmin start backup" to create a VHD copy of a machine, for re-use as a direct boot or in hyper-v. (wbadmin would normally create two VHDx if a reserve partition and an OS partition existed.) No probs, this worked. even if no reserved...
