How to point BCDEasy to linux partition?

#1
Hi,

I installed linux mint next to windows. It wrote the MBR with Grub and it worked well.

Now, my goal is to chainload grub within BCDeasy. So I removed Grub and used the knob in BCDeasy to write the windows bootloader in MBR again.

Problem I am now having: it doesn't find Linux anymore.

I get messages like this:

_________________________________________________________________________

starting main ()...... (hd,0,0)
....
error: unknown filesystem
entering rescue mode
_________________________________________________________________________

My linux partition is on (hd,0,2) b.t.w.

Have you tried EasyBCD 2.3?

No, Easy BCD2.2

It seems to work right now.

Somehow Easy BCD2.2 created NeoGrub menu-items. So it might wanted to install NeoGrub of EasyBCD.

I think the program called boot-repair fixed the problem. It installed Grub on my Linux partition which did Windows Boatloader picked up.
