    hello EasyBCD staff,

    i surfed the web trying to find
    a way to mount iso on boot
    and i saw you'r program(EasyBCD)
    and tought i give it a go
    I downloaded it and installed it(Ver 2.3)

    and it sohwed me an error window of EFi not supported
    even before the program went to the main window

    I searched the web for a work around
    and then i saw a page that showed me that
    it supportes Efi, so i thought i had a older ver
    so i went to you'r main site and also there
    it sais "Windows 10 And UEFI Ready"
    so i downloaded the latest ver 2.3,
    and still it shows me "Efi Not supported" window
    right at the program start!

    I have atteched a picture showing
    the error and the EasyBCD Ver.

    My Specs:
    Win7 Ultimate
    ASUS MotherBoard
    1TB HD
    8GB RAM

    I have no idea why it happens,
    please Help.

    On a UEFI PC, a lot of EasyBCD function is not available.
    EasyBCD is "UEFI ready" in that is does what is allowed under UEFI. It can't do what is only allowed on a BIOS/MBR PC.
    There is a simpler (free) Neosmart stand-alone utiltity for building bootable USB drives.

    Thanks for the Replay,
    but i don't need to make a bootable usb,
    I'm looking for a way to mount ISO Files on PC Boot Menu!

    if it's not Uefi ready why aren't you upgrading you'r product
    becuase soon every computer will have a uefi system.

    and if you don't wan't to upgrade at least make a workaround!

    Thanks,
    Looking for a positive Response, Not like mine :wink:

    I repeat.
    It does everything that's possible to the BCD on a UEFI system.
    The restriction is in MS's implementation of the efi version of bootmgr, not a shortcoming of EasyBCD.

    ok,
    no need to shout....
    I will look for some other program,
    if your's isn't compatible.
    but I regret that such a known
    and famous program doesn't support
    such a known and famous method.

    Thank's,
    Yaniv R.

    You seem to be deluding under the impression that the fault is with this "known and famous program" instead of accepting that this is a limitation purposely imposed by Microsoft. There's really nothing more we can tell you... Good luck finding a solution elsewhere.
