    After selecting an OS ("Reboot on Selection" active), system reboots to OS Selection anyway

    It depends on whether your bios has USB device boot enabled. The easiest way is to obviously temporarily remove the USB stick and see if that takes care of the error. I'd be more concerned with whether there's an active partition on Disk 1 with a `BOOT` folder in the root.

    How to tell what version of windows?

    You can see https://neosmart.net/EasyRE/Home/IdentifyWindows if that helps, going by memory.

    Windows 7 Recovery Disc Pro fails to start with "(EE) no screens found(EE)"

    Hi Dave, EasyRE actually has some workarounds to enable support for X11 graphics on 6th gen+ hardware, even going back to FreeBSD 10. It appears that in some cases the workaround fails, however. FWIW, we obtain samples of pretty much all hardware that is reported to not work with EasyRE to...

    Not fixable???

    Did you use the system restore option in EasyRE or only the automated repair? You'll need to use the former to work around this error.

    What does the metro bootloader option do ?

    The error is silently swallowed if metro is not an option. It would be better to hide that option entirely, but EasyBCD does not (presently) check for the version of bootmgr to see supported capabilities.

    After selecting an OS ("Reboot on Selection" active), system reboots to OS Selection anyway

    I actually meant two instances of the default Windows BCD bootloader. Is there a mix of EFI and MBR installations on this PC?

    After selecting an OS ("Reboot on Selection" active), system reboots to OS Selection anyway

    Hey Paul. I'm sorry to hear about that situation! It sounds like you might have two different bootloaders installed. Is there a mix of EFI and MBR installations on this PC?

    i need xp setup to install without upgrade os prompt...

    Windows XP still had a distinction between "Upgrade" and "Full" versions of the OS setup disc. It sounds like you're either using the wrong base ISO for the image or something went wrong in the slipstreaming and converted a full setup disc into an upgrade one.

    Revistited: No ang0 on all drives problem

    I'm not sure, but it's possible that Windows moved things around on the hard drive. The ANG files should not be fragmented on-disk. It's also possible that Windows compressed some of the boot files? The ANG files must not be compressed, either.

    EasyBCD backup wants to use Onedrive

    fwiw, EasyBCD has absolutely zero knowledge of OneDrive and is definitely not programmed to prefer to save things to it. However, Microsoft has been pushing OneDrive hard and has made it the default folder that a generic save file dialog will default to the first time.

    How to print threads?

    I think you can (temporarily) change your settings to display a huge number of posts per page (like 500 or something) which should get most threads down to a single page you can print.

    EASY RE WON'T BOOT WINDOWS 7

    @chios if you got a message about a KDB backtrace that means that EasyRE crashed while starting up due to a hardware fault or incompatibility. It's usually a sign that your problem stems from hardware damage, likely a bad stick of RAM. There isn't anything you can do differently to get EasyRE...

    EasyRe internet connexion

    It's possible that the ethernet controller on your motherboard isn't supported by the native drivers. You can try running `ifconfig` in the terminal to see the list of detected network adapters and their state.
