Hi Cojeap, welcome to NST.
Do you own a copy of Vista or W7 ?
The BCD is a feature introduced with Vista. It doesn't exist in XP.
Though EasyBCD will run on XP, it has no function if that XP is not part of a dual-boot with Vista/W7.

I'm afraid you won't be able to use EasyBCD to achieve what you want, without a BCD.
EasyBCD is not a boot manager. It's a tool for manipulating the Vista/W7 boot manager.

In your case you can use grub or if you install OS X after Windows, OS X's bootloader should add a "Other" entry that you can use to boot into Windows.
