    Boot from second drive

    Sure it can be done. Easy sets it up for you. I run 3 drives and 5 different OSs. The only problem I have ever encountered was attempting to mix an older IDE drive in with SATA drives. Never did get the IDE to boot (It would function fine as a data storage device, though). It has been a...

    Problem Booting From Third Hard Drive

    This may not be your problem; however,--------- A while back, I was attempting to quad-boot with Easy. I had 4 drives in my case. Three were SATA and the fourth was IDE. I was never able, and no one on this forum was ever able, to get the IDE drive to boot. I finally just gave up on it and...

    "Remove" easybcd

    Hi Glen. I quad boot Vista (primary OS), 7, Simply Mepis 8.0 (Linux), and Simply Mepis 8.5 (Linux). It took me a long time and lots of frustration to figure out how to get 2 different versions of Linux to boot. I will not use GRUB for the Windows installs - my preference. I have Easy BCD...

    Some possible help for failed boot

    This may be old news, but it also may save someone a lot of headaches. This afternoon, I completed my normal chores in Vista and decided to reboot into Simply Mepis Linux which I am attempting to learn. (I have been using Easy BCD for at least a couple of years). I am currently quad booting...

    Windows 7 and NeoGrub problems.

    Try This Go to this link: "Boot multiple versions of Linux???". Go to post #3. That is how I go it to boot 2 Linux installs. I did not use NeoGrub. I let Easy do its own thing, & modified the menu.lst in the first version of Linux that I installed. All that is in my NST folder is the...

    Another Failure

    Me either I really don't know why I do that either, just do. I did read somewhere a while ago in something about Linux that executing one certain command multiple times is frequently required. Probably has no bearing on this situation. I have used Easy for at least a couple of years. I...

    Another Failure

    My Thoughts OK, so I am not an expert; however, I have 2 comps using EasyBCD. My desktop machine is a Quad Boot with Vista 32, Seven 64, Simply Mepis 8.0xx 64, and Simply Mepis 8.5 Beta 5. I am using 3 SATA drives on that machine. It has been a long time since I had XP on one of my machines...

    Boot multiple versions of Linux???

    I figured it out!! YAHOOOOO!! Thank you Kairozamorro for the reply. I was in my second install of Simply Mepis Linux when you posted it. I went back several pages of posts and found two listings that seemed similar to my problem. I merged the responses in my head and here is what I came up...

    Boot multiple versions of Linux???

    I received no answers to this question, so I'll rephrase it. Is EasyBCD capable of recognizing multiple versions of Linux? If so, how do I set it up? It currently always selects the first (original install) and refuses to boot the second (newer install). Thanks, Jerry in Anchorage

    Problem adding another OS to triple boot system

    Greetings group. Recently my son needed to set up a dual boot system & I pointed him toward EasyBCD. He is now hooked, & loves it. I have been running a triple boot (Vista, Seven, & Mepis Linux) on my desktop machine at home. I'm using my laptop at work right now. Anyway, I decided to add a...

    Lost My Mepis (Linux) Install

    Thanks, Terry Thank you Terry. Sometimes things just aren't obvious. I had read the Sticky repeatedly, but it just didn't hit me. If you open the pic that is referenced in the Sticky, it doesn't show an entry for a drive, either. Actually, it shows that space grayed out==which to me...

    Am I blackballed? Did I offend someone? Can anyone offer any assistance? Jerry in Anchorage Addendum: Well, I'm back up & running. I started reading old posts & found the one by Coolname007 (Tutorial) from way back in Nov or Dec 09. I thought I knew what I was doing, but as we say up...

    Noob needs help - dual boot dual sata's

    Up to you I am going on memory, now, & that is highly suspect. If you use 7 as your primary OS & if you have lots of apps & files on it, I would leave it alone and put Linux on that drive. First off, you should back up everything you are afraid of losing. Got that out of the way. Next I...
