EasyBCD 2.0.0.87 would't load menu.lst

#1
Hi, I've hitten a problem with the NeoGrub Bootloader.
1) Installed Fedora Core 6 on 2nd Partition first Hardisk.
2) Installed the Grub Bootloader from Fedora into 2nd Partition.
3) Installed XP Professional on 2nd Harddisk
4) Installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit on 1st Partition first Harddisk
5) Than installed EasyBCD 2.0.0.87 on Windows 7 64bit

Could Boot Windows XP as a charm with this EasyBCD Version.
I installed the NeoGrub Bootloader, and configured the menu.lst as follow:

Code:
#Begin Fedora Core entry
root (hd0,2)
chainloader +1
#End Fedora Core entry
bcdedit entrys
Code:
[SIZE=1]There are a total of 3 entries listed in the bootloader.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Default: Windows 7[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Timeout: 30 seconds.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Entry #1[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Name: Windows 7[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]BCD ID: {current}[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Drive: C:\[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Entry #2[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Name: Microsoft Windows XP[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]BCD ID: {4c928c5b-35c5-11df-880a-8cd7e54c05ba}[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Device: boot[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Bootloader Path: \NTLDR[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Entry #3[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Name: NeoGrub Bootloader[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]BCD ID: {4c928c5e-35c5-11df-880a-8cd7e54c05ba}[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Drive: C:\[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]Bootloader Path: \NST\NeoGrub.mbr[/SIZE]
When I start the "NeoGrub Bootloader" entry
I get into GRUB4DOS, and the menu.lst file isnt't get parsed at all.
If i give:
Code:
configfile /NST/menu.lst
the Fedora Core own Grub bootloader loads as expected.
Then I can choose my grub entry, and can further boot.

May it possible, that the NeoGrub.mbr which gets loaded does not contain a call to the menu.lst file.

with kindest regards

Very possible. Let me double-check and get back to you, sdohn.

Thanks!

Addendum:

Yep. You were right!

Please try build 88 and let me know how it goes.
