Export BCD onto other hard drive's active partition and configure it correctly?

Ok, I'm not sure if this is already an implemented feature in EasyBCD or not, and if it is, I apologize...but if it is not, can you please add it? :smile: I also apologize if it might sound a little like Panarchy's "Install BCD to Logical partition" request, but I hope you at least hear me out. :wink: If this is not a feature already, would it be too difficult to add the capability of exporting a BCD from a Vista installation on one hard drive to an installation on another hard drive, i.e. to the "active" primary partition on the second hard drive, and configure it correctly for the Vista system on the hard drive it is exported to? I got the idea when I read multibooters "cloning Vista" section, as it mentions a few bcdedit commands to get a clone of Vista's BCD to work, namely:
bcdedit /set {current} osdevice boot
bcdedit /set {current} device boot
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device boot
bcdedit /set {memdiag} device boot
and then there is also the "export" command to make a backup of Vista's BCD to a new file:
bcdedit /export X:\folder\bcd
I figure it shouldn't be too difficult to implement, but if it is, then of course nevermind.
Just a thought, is all...
