    Grub is now controlling 7 and Mint...but there may be another version of Grub will EBCD find it?

    Originally I had installed Grub to the partition where Linux Mint is located using EBCD to choose between the 7 bootloader and Grub made it a snap. But at some point the system got hosed and I had to put Grub on the MBR. Now of course I don't need EBCD and Grub controls both OS's. For image...

    Now that Grub is controlling the booting of W7 and Linux can I remove EBCD?

    Terry, Now that Grub has found the Windows Loader for W7, and has it listed in it's boot menu, is it NOW safe to remove all of EasyBCD or am I to be saddled with this thing until I reformat the SSD? Thanks, J T

    Now that Grub is controlling the booting of W7 and Linux can I remove EBCD?

    Hi Terrry60, Yes of course I removed the Win 7 entry!! <sigh> If I could remove the entire program and not affect W7 then why does one line of the program cause it not to boot? No matter, the W7 repair disc got me back up and running, now when I see the Grub menu and am offered W7 and choose...

    Took off my second OS. How to remove EasyBCD and have the machine boot up without it?

    HI Terry, Well I just deleted the 2nd partition ( D) so there is nothing left of anything there, it's just unallocated space right now. What puzzles me is that EasyBCd still lists Win 8 as still being there and offers it as a 2nd boot choice. I went in and removed the reference to Win 8 and...

    Hello, I have a HD with 3 partitions XP on the C: Win 7 was on the D: and H is for storage no OS was ever there. I took Win 7 off because I wanted to try Win 8.1, now Win 8.1 is gone too. If I simply remove EasyBCD I'm sure that the machine won't boot without it. What settings must I...
