When I tried to use the new bootgrabber, I got so many messages I did not know what to look for. Overflows and some other things. Now that I know it is a debugging version, I will try it again tomorrow.
I have still not been able to get the normal bootgrabber to fail. :happy:
Here is what I think you were asking. The picture is the error message, which is different from the original one, but still a problem. Once again, ntldr and ntdetect are put in the System Reserve partition, but not boot.ini.
Any feedback as to what these dumps might indicate so I can look in a more specific area, or at least not change something that would effect the outcome?
Sorry I changed some things around, but I did not want you going to a lot of trouble if the problem was just with my setup.
Yes. It threw me at first because the message was different. The other one actually said bootgrabber, this one does not.
Just to make sure, I moved the original bootgrabber to another folder on my desktop and dropped in the new one you supplied to the bin folder. Hope this is right.
It is strange it worked several times in a row. In between, I had removed both hard drives, put my old one back in and loaded Fedora. Then I replaced the Win 7 drive and set it to primary. After that there were numerous attempts to get Fedora to boot using EasyBCD 220.127.116.11. Your Wiki was down, but I got it to work by putting a drive letter on the System Reserved partition.
When I replaced the XP drive, the first attempt to use EasyBCD, with the subsitiute bootgrabber, failed.
I just hope my system is not a problem, it is from 2002 and seems to have some quirks when it comes to forgiving problems with hard drive formatting.
The new file, 589K was put in place and the result was this message. There were two more after this one, then the Boot helper failed message. The zip file contains 2 minidumps. A7B6 was taken for bootgrabber after the message. The other one was done after ignoring the messages and allowing the process to fail.
All I have to do to get the failure is to go to tools, and try to "Auto Configure boot.ini"
