    Magic button for easy bcd

    I have a wish for a magic button for easybcd, when you click it, easybcd would check every partion of every drive for an os and then create neogrub entries for them all. Very lazy for me to wish for but I just cannot combine my two linux entries into the neogrub menu. Just a wish. Mike

    New feature please.

    Please can I request a feature to be added to a future build of easybcd. I would like to see an option of selecting actual drives and partitions when adding an OS. Because Linux and OSX insist on writing something to all the drives in a system even the ones you are not installing them to and so...
