    Dual Boot Windows 7 and Fedora 20 does not work

    Hi thanks for the info. 1. Fedora 20 (19 as well) does not allow installation of Bootloader into Partition Boot Record. They claim that with GRUB 2 this is not supported behaviour. 2. You can do it anyway by dropping to the shell before rebooting after the installation finish. You then...

    Dual Boot Windows 7 and Fedora 20 does not work

    Hi I had a working configuration of Windows 7 and Fedora 19. When I installed Fedora 19 I did choose not to install a boot loader. Then I booted into Windows 7 and ran EasyBCD 2.2 and added the following entry: - Type: GRUB 2 - Name: Fedora 19 - Drive: Automatically locate and load This...

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    Maybe you could consider making a portable version of EasyBCD. So Admins could put EasyBCD on a network share and use a remote script to execute the commands. I mean all our machines have the Altiris Deployment client installed and we can invoke jobs on the machines. The tools itself are...

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    Man, you saved my day... This way it worked ! Thank you so much for your support... A question: I have seen that there is an EasyBCD 2.1 Beta Wouldn't it make sense to add a checkbox in the LINUX configuration TAB [x] Place Linux bootsector file into boot loader partition. You then...

    OK.... I implemented what you said on a freshly deployed *non-working* system.... And guess what: it worked... Now let's see what happens if I am going to implement this into the MASTER Image.... Will tell you soon... Regards, Oliver

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    So you want me to use the "isn't installed to the MBR" in combination with putting it into the 100MB BootMgr partition ? Correct ? Addendum: BTW. The alternative method was indeed working on the Master... It searched for the menu.lst and booted Fedora.

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    I hardly can't believe that the cloning tool corrupts a file and especially my specific "nst_linux.mbr". I then would suspect other parts of the OS Windows 7 to be corrupt as well. I as well copied the original *working* nst_linux.mbr over the one in the cloned system. Does not help. I as well...

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    Hmm.. I tried two things 1) Fixing the current enty with bcdedit: bcdedit /set {xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx} device partition=c: bcdedit /set {xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx} osdevice partition=c: 2) Assigned a drive letter to the boot partition on the not working (deployed PC) and copied over the NST folder from...

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    Hmmm... Don't know.... I have the 100MB Partion Windows 7 creates when installing. Then comes Windows 7 (C:) with 95GB and then comes a third partition holding Fedora 14. So BCD sits in the 100 MB Partition... When starting the PC it boots BootMgr and offers the menu where Windows 7 is the...

    Cannot boot Fedora 14 anymore after Disk Imaging

    Hi thanks for the answer... We have configured to clone the whole disk but I don't know what Altiris does in the Background. Maybe it clones partition by partition. Is there a way to do the exact the same what EasyBCD does with bcdedit.exe? Or does EasyBCD just issue bcdedit commands ? If...
