I have installed EasyBCD 2.1.2 on Windows 8 CP. When I start EasyBCD I have the message: There are a total of 0 entries listed in the bootloader. EasyBCD 2.0.2 shows me correct all partitions. What can I do?

Please share the contents of EasyBCD's "Detailed Mode" here.

Thanks.

Is there a specific BCD greyed in the Tools > Options > General Settings on 2.1 ?

I apologize, I actually need the output of
Useful Utilities | Power Console

bcdedit /enum all

OR a backup of your BCD.

Is this the output from the Power Console or did you just run the command from a normal command prompt?

Because it's in German, whereas if you used the Power Console it *should* have used EasyBCD's own (English) copy of bcdedit.

Addendum:

Actually, I can see that you ran it from

C:\Windows\System32>

It's important to do it from C:\Program Files\NeoSmart Technologies\EasyBCD\bin

Very interesting - are you sure that's correct?

Does it really just start off with
Code:
osdevice                ramdisk=[S:]\Recovery\298a9392-4452-11dd-9ddf-a147780d30


If you're having problems copying and pasting, this is easier:
Code:
bcdedit.exe /enum all > output.txt

It'll create an output.txt you can just upload.

Thank you for your interest to my problem, but I don´t see a progress. So I have uninstalled EasyBCD 2.1.2 and installed EasyBCD 2.2 Beta Build 170. It has the same bug as 2.1.2! I have it uninstalled again and installed EasyBCD 2.0.2 and this version runs fine! Pleas see my attachments.

A second problem I want to ask you: EasyBCD catches my Windows Recovery Console in the boot menu. When I try to edit boot menu in EasyBCD, I see a failure message. I must the WRC write manually in the boot.ini. Why does EasyBCD this?

Found the bug, it has to do with the fact that you have an EFI bootloader installed (though not used).

Next build:


(should be uploaded tomorrow-ish)

Yes, I have installed Windows 8 CP, after this installation the problem begun.
In the NeoSmart Blog under "EasyBCD is ready for Windows 8 CP" at March, 6, 2012 "Shukree" gave me the advice "Just edit by EasyBCD any entry in BCD file and you will be reverted to old text-based boot menu".
This have I done.
Now I have again the old text-based boot menu, but when I choose the "Earlier Windows Versions" entry in the boot menu I get the message "Invalid boot.ini-file. booting from C:\Windows." This message is not true, the arc-pathes of my Windows XP partitions are correct. In the moment, only the first Windows XP partition is reachable.
Can EasyBCD here help?

You may be looking at the wrong boot.ini or it may something other than an incorrect/invalid ARC path. Use EasyBCD to automatically create boot.ini

To Terry:
Thank you for your advice!
I have written and used the EasyLDR, but the result seems to be not correct.
First I have Edit the Boot Menu: Deleted the Default "Earlier Windows Versions".
Second I have Added New Entries: XP1 = D, XP2 = F, XP3 = J, unchecked the checkbox and choosen XP1 = default.
Third I have Viewed Settings: XP1 = D, XP2 = D, XP3 = D.
Why not XP2 = F and XP3 = J?

That's not the way it works. View Settings shows the path to EasyLDR, not the path to XP.

OK, I`ve seen, it works!

This was really a long way to the successful end.
Many thanks for your patiently help!

EasyBCD build 172 should fix your 0 entries problem. Please read the last post in the beta thread as it explains the extent of the UEFI support in b172.
