This has happened several times. The only solution I have found is to un-install & re-install EasyBCD..

Microsoft Online Crash Analysis

Mac Pro :- Bay 1 Mac OSX Leopard on 200G Drive Vista calls this Disk 2
Bay 2 XPpro on Part.1 of 250Gb Vista calls this Disk 0
Bay 3 Vista on Part 2 of 250 Gb Part1 is 200Mb Bootcamp " Disk 3
Bay 4 XPpro on Part 1 of 250G Vista calls this Disk 1

Bootcamp menu has an entry for XP which throws up boot.ini menu to choose which XP.
I have not been successful in booting Leopard from Easy BCD and have to hold Option Key down & do it the Bootcamp way! Vista is default in OSX and XPpro is default in Easy BCD

EasyBCD does not work well with Boot Camp. That is why you are having this issue.

Not exactly.

EasyBCD is 100% EFI compatible. Apparently, Microsoft's bcdedit.exe (which EasyBCD uses) isn't.

Basically, EasyBCD will try to boot into xxxxx by configuring its use via bcdedit.exe, which should *never* crash.

If it does, it's the Microsoft code that's crashing, and I have no control over that. Sorry.

I'll drop someone at MS a line and see what I can find.
