How to create BCD store on external drive


New Member
Hi, I would like to make my external USB drive bootable into WinPE and the Windows recovery console.

I can't quite figure out in EasyBCD how to add booting to a non system drive?

Any advise appreciated.

You can follow the instructions at How to: Install the Vista Bootloader on Windows XP The NeoSmart Files with some minor changes to refer to the removable drive instead of the local disk. That'll get the bootloader installed on the removable disk, then you can use EasyBCD to modify the bootloader to add an entry that points to the WIM image.
