Error Message when attempting to add Linux Mint 13 Maya


New Member
Hi, i've got a windows7 laptop with a 256 GB C: all windows partition.

I added a 32 GB mSATA SSD and created a 250 MB /boot partition, ~23 GB / partition, and 8 GB swap partition. The /boot partition was primary. Installed Linux Mint 13 Maya 64-bit Cinnamon on it.

Went into windows, installed EasyBCD 2.1.2, tried to "add entry", GRUB 2, Name "LinuxMint" got the following error:

"BCD Execution Error!"

An error occured while attempting the specified create operation. Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.

Any ideas?


Problem solved, needed to run Easy BCD as administrator.

You shouldn't be able to run EasyBCD as non-admin...
