GAG Boot Manager

Discussion in 'alt.windows7.general' started by Maurice Helwig, Jul 10, 2012.

  1. I have used GAG Boor Manager successfully for some years now.

    I have win 7 partition, win XP partition, A Linux partition, and an
    archive partition for data, all on a single 1 TB HDD.

    Data and OS partitions are backed up or imaged for safety reasons.

    I plan on moving the win 7 to a separate 120 Gb SSD as this is the OS I
    use the most and the speed advantage will be considerable.

    Does anyone know if I can Install GAG boot manager on the SSD and get it
    to work as I have it now.

    I have tried to get an account with sourceforge so that I can contact
    the Author of the software but I have not been successful in doing so.

    Does anyone know how to contact the Author.

    GAG can be found here

    http://gag.sourceforge.net/index.html

    I also have used GAG for many years, but totally failed to get any
    response from the developer.
    (Tried others, but prefer GAG.)

    I'd try in the forum, here;
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/gag/forums/forum/230439

    or maybe drop an email to Sourceforge for the attention of Sergio Costas
    Rodriguez.

    I have also been experimenting with Gag on a computer with an SSD "disk" added.
    On the latter I installed a second copy of W7. It is the third disk in the computer with Gag installed on the first.
    I added this second copy of W7 in Gag. Then I tried to start it up. My findings are mixed. The first time things went smoothly but the second time I got the familiar choice between repair and normal startup. The first did not help and the second led to some rebooting but finally W7 started.
    Then I decoupled the other disks so that only the SSD remained. On it are W7 and a Linux distribution with Grub installed in this distribution.
    I then installed Gag. W7 started up all right and so did Linux. But a second time Linux did not start and W7 again asked about repair and normal.
    Thus so far my conclusion is that Gag is not stable when an SSD is present.
