Run EasyBCD without Vista

#1
Well, I am trying to set up a system with Red Hat Linux and Windows XP - I want to boot linux off the boot.ini (and I know this is possible, but am having some problems)

I remember reading somewhere that there was a way to use the Vista bootloader to boot all your operating systems even if you dont have vista on the system, and I could then use EasyBCD to manage the partitions. My thing right now is that I cant boot linux because the linux bootloader is on the partition for linux, and not on the MBR

Anyone have suggestions for how to fix this?!? :brows:

Hi Phantom, welcome to NST.
You could start by looking in the XP troubleshooter and if that doesn't describe your problem (and solution), post back with a little more detail of what's happening.
