    EasyBCD doesnt work after fixing MBR

    Thanks guys, and I would like to know if those new ideas would have fixed the problem.. just so you can better help others - But, I managed to fix the problem. Where ever the BCD data is, (doesn't matter) I trust EasyBCD to look in the right places for it by default - that's how it's designed...

    EasyBCD doesnt work after fixing MBR

    Computer Guru, I dont have a boot/bcd. I have a Boot folder under Windows.. but it has no BCD files inside it. Terry I haven't checked but I never changed the boot sequence in my Bios ever. That said, I have no idea what exactly the program Bootice did to fix my MBR ( if it moved things around...

    EasyBCD doesnt work after fixing MBR

    O.k.. I uninstalled the 2.1.2 version and installed the EasyBCD 2.2 Beta - Build 177 version. On program start I get the error that it could not find a valid config file and asks me if I want to load one from backup. I tell it, No. The program loads and I attempt to add a new Windows 7 default...

    EasyBCD doesnt work after fixing MBR

    I can see a greyed file in the box and the option above Not is ticked. Version I have is 2.1.2 A little more info that may help you nail down my problem. I did try to select a backup to auto load at startup and checked the box. This allows the EasyBCD config file to load at program start but...

    EasyBCD doesnt work after fixing MBR

    The automatically load check box under Options > General Settings is Not checked. If it were, the system should try to load the backup copy of the BCD that I saved with EasyBCD. I assume I should try checking this box?

    EasyBCD doesnt work after fixing MBR

    I had a rather nasty Windows / Linux Mint situation where i accidentally install a Linux Mint grub bootloader to my Windows system partition. This caused me not to be able to boot from windows but I could load Linux Mint just fine from Grub. None of the regular repair solutions would work to...

    Tripple boot Win 7 PC-BSD and Zorin - Zorin not working

    The Answers: Zorin OS uses Grub2. The menu file is located in /boot/grub/grub.cfg on the Zorin OS root partition. Zorin OS uses the same bootloader and installer as Ubuntu as it is based on it.

    Tripple boot Win 7 PC-BSD and Zorin - Zorin not working

    So far I have found out it is Grub 2 they are using. with the auto install it installs to here: "9. underneath the window where you can see you partition list is a bar asking you where the bootloader should be installed, it should say something like: /dev/sda ATA xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. this is...

    Tripple boot Win 7 PC-BSD and Zorin - Zorin not working

    I agree with you in many ways Mak. I am a Linux user heck even a PC-BSD user (FreeBSD) and I see security holes being filled all the time.. it's just that there arent as many people exploiting these holes, but that don't mean it cannot happen. I do like the less Linux more windows theme of Zorin...

    Tripple boot Win 7 PC-BSD and Zorin - Zorin not working

    This may not be a EasyBCD problem, but if not you guys can help me determine that. I boot to win 7 or PC-BSD just fine.. added Zorin 5 which is Linux and based on Ubuntu.. I believe they use Grub2. If I set EasyBSD to load from Grub is doesnt do anything, if I tell it to load Grub 2 it starts...

    Two different entries boot the same OS

    I see. Er.. can't blame a guy for asking. I can uninstall Hubble for now because using Isotope is more important. Official Release of Isotope is about a month away so I hope Guru gets it fixed in that time. Thanks for the info.

    Two different entries boot the same OS

    Dagnabbit. How about this. Telling EasyBCD to only run Isotope as if Hubble is not installed? I know Isotope will load every time as long as there is not a conflict with Hubble. I have tried just deleting the Hubble entry and setting up a fresh entry for isotope but it seems as long as Hubble...

    Two different entries boot the same OS

    I have PC-BSD Hubble on primary disk 3 and PC-BSD Isotpoe on primary disk4. The same OS, Hubble boots for either entry I choose. I did have Mepis in place of Hubble on disk 3 at first which is Linux not PC-BSD and everything worked fine. I wasn't using the Mepis and decided to overwrite that...
