I'm here to get the new EasyBCD 2.0 beta to dual boot my win 7 machine and ubuntu 9.1. Must say it did not work at first, but next morning, come to find out, it wasn't EasyBCD (Don't think) but my external drive. It is strange, but if I boot both computer and external drive for the first time EasyBCD picks it up or the external actually mounts. Before EasyBCD it was Grub2 on my mbr and the same thing would occur. It would only find the grub.conf located on the second partition (hd1,1) of my external on a fresh boot. If I reboot it does not find it and within Grub2 it would go to grub rescue with no commands! So here I am with EasyBCD which is far easier to use in my opinion than editing menu.lst or grub.conf. Another to add the neogrub option lending me grub commands grub> find gives me (hd0,0), (hd1,0) but when I try to mount my external cannot mount try to ls the dir cannot. Anyone have any clues about externals and mounting during boot please help. Another question is is there a developers community or anything I can do to try to help with code? I would love to be apart of building EasyBCD!
Hi NeoEinstein, welcome to NST.
There is no "official developers community" or anything, it's just us hanging out here
I think there's an issue with the version of NeoGrub that EasyBCD 2.0 Beta is shipping with, I'm going to recompile a new build of NeoGrub and distribute that alongside a new beta release. Give that a shot.
