Hi Roofus,

Thanks for the bug report. What's the exact scenario here? Is it reproducible? What are you trying to do, and what does your detailed BCD output look like?

Consistently reproducable

Windows 7 64bit edition on primary partitions 1&2
FreeBSD installed on partition 3
OpenBSD installed on partition 4

I can add one of the 2 BSDs to the boot menu, as soon as I try to add a second one it crashes.
Steps to reproduce:
Launch EasyBCD & go to "Add New Entry"
Go to Linux/BSD tab
Pick partition 3 or 4 (whichever is not currently already added to the menu)
Add entry
"EasyBCD has stopped working" dialogue box pops up
