Dual-Booting DOS with Vista?

Can EasyBCD provide the means to dual-boot DOS with Vista ? (I searched, but couldn't find a related thread).

I want to be able to boot into a DOS (FAT) partition (on my Vista PC) to run an old 'dBase' program & its associated DOS database - whenever needed.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello Aaron. Welcome to NST!

Legacy Windows Versions - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

Yes there is info on how to dual boot DOS and Vista. That is the wiki page but some people say that it isnt complete. There are a few topics some pages back that i will try to find for you ASAP on how to do this as well. But that should be something to start with.

Aaron, EasyBCD 2.0 has rewritten DOS support - if you'll drop me a private message with your email address and your agreement not to redistribute any private builds I'll send you copy you can test.
