This page covers the various operating systems supported by EasyBCD. It includes OSes that EasyBCD can set up your PC to boot into (“destination operating systems”) as well as OSes that EasyBCD can actually run on.

Destination Operating Systems

Follows is an up to date list of the operating systems supported (or not) by the latest version of EasyBCD. If an operating system is not listed below, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work, just that we haven’t tested it yet. Once an operating system is confirmed not working, it’ll be listed below. Platforms listed under “Limited Support” have been vouched for as working with EasyBCD, but at the moment aren’t officially supported (meaning no documentation and no guarantees). Other operating systems are completely supported, heavily tested, and thoroughly documented.
