EasyBCD is NeoSmart Technologies' multiple award-winning answer to taking control of your bootloader. EasyBCD extends and revamps the Windows Vista/Windows 7 BCD bootloader, and with EasyBCD, almost anything is possible. Setting up and configuring a dual-boot between Windows 7, Windows Vista, older versions of Windows such as XP & 2003, Linux, Ubuntu, BSD, and Mac OS X is a breeze. You just point & click and EasyBCD does the rest.

Hi Guys,

I'm CG from NeoSmart Technologies, the author of EasyBCD. Thanks for posting this news release here - we've barely posted the update!

You can read more about EasyBCD 2.0 and its (IMHO ;) ) cool new features here:
http://neosmart.net/blog/2010/welcome-to-easybcd-2/

  • Complete Windows 7 support (including the pretty-boot screen!)
  • Total redesign of the user interface to make the stuff you use more often easier to get to and easier to understand
  • Automatic configuration and one-click setup of Windows XP dual-boots. No more mucking around w/ boot.ini and NTDETECT + NTLDR
  • Support for multiple top-level Windows XP entries. You no longer need to go through a second NTLDR menu no matter how many XPs you have installed!
  • Support for GRUB2 and ext4fs (we're looking at you, Ubuntu *glare*)
  • Boot from ISO images and Virtual Harddisk (vhd) files!
  • Create bootable USB drives!
  • Change the boot drive on your system (including all the partition management stuff) with one click!
  • Rewritten OS X support (yes, again *sigh*)
  • EasyBCD BIOS Extender to let you boot from network devices, specific hard disks, USBs, and more even if your BIOS doesn't support it (thanks to PLoP integration)
  • Support for multiple top-level GRLDR entries (in the same vein as XP entries above)
  • Improved boot device detection, EasyBCD always runs, even if your boot device is inaccessible or the BCD isn't installed!
  • Loading indicator for lengthy operations
  • Better support for loading and managing external BCD stores
  • Complete EasyBCD portability. Just tell the installer where to stick it, and you're set!
  • Improved high DPI support
  • Ability to create safe-mode entries
  • Improved MBR repair, BCD repair, and more!
I thought I'd drop by and write a thank you in person - we get a lot of referrals from the w7 forums :)

Thanks Clifford and Guru.

Been using this software since 7 was in early beta and have always recommended it. Already have 2.0 installed and good to go in case I ever need it for my use or to direct others.

Good stuff.

Good to see the boot.ini change. Users would always find issues with their XP and that in dual-boot scenarios.
