    Getting Ubuntu to boot

    Over the last couple of days I've installed Ubuntu (most recent version) twice to the second partition on my second hard drive. The installation goes well and I follow the procedure outlined at http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Ubuntu . Everything goes well until I get to step four...

    XP Pro installation CD doesn't recognize one terabyte hard drive

    Quite some time ago the XP Pro installation on one of the partitions on the hard drive (1 TB) on my main work machine stopped working. I posted to this forum and got good information on how to deal with the BCD repair issues using EasyBCD which I've used for multi-booting on this machine for...

    XP partition no longer boots

    For almost 3 years I have used EasyBCD to multi-boot my main work machine at home (Vista 64, Vista 32, XP Pro, and Ubuntu). I have never had any problems, until now that is. Now, for some unknown reason, the XP partition will no longer boot. When I select XP, the HD LED shows no hard disk...

    I use EasyBCD to multiboot my main work machine at home (Vista 32, Vista 64, XP, and Ubuntu). I also use Acronis to image my system drive. I note that Acronis now offers its Universal Restore product with its home version. Not long ago I used the commercial version of this product to migrate...

    Vista restore points being trashed anyway!

    I've been using EasyBCD to dual-boot Vista 32 and XP Pro for some time now. All seems well. The Vista partition is not visible when I boot into XP. I unhide ihe Vista partition before booting Vista--exactly as one should do. I just checked the system restore points in Vista, however, and...

    Triple Boot: Windows XP, Vista x86, Vista x64??

    Now that, thanks to EasyBCD and the excellent support I received in this forum some weeks ago, I have a perfectly functioning Vista of 32-bit/XP dual-boot working, I see another classic Microsoft “gotcha” looming on the horizon. It appears from what I have been reading that HD and Blue-Ray PC...

    "Unexpected declaration" error

    I spent a great deal of time yesterday trying to get Vista and XP to dual boot on my main machine. I finally succeeded—although I have not yet gotten NeoGrub to work correctly yet. In the end, I made the successful configuration changes from EasyBCD running on XP. Now, however, if I try to...
