EasyBCD 2.2

Advertisements

EasyBCD is the ultimate bootloader modification tool created to give end users complete control over everything from that happens before and during Windows startup. With EasyBCD, adding Windows 7/Vista entries, legacy Windows entries, Linux, Mac OS X, BSD, and more to the boot menu is truly a one-click experience. It gives you the power to easily create and manage bootable USB devices, boot from ISO images or virtual hard disks, boot from network paths and usb devices, and much, much more.

With EasyBCD, users can make and restore backups of BCD settings, set up the MBR, repair boot files, change the boot drive, diagnose system boot problems, disable driver verification, create safe mode entries, limit CPU and memory usage, create multiple boot files and so much more in a snap. Just point, click, and watch as your bootloader automatically does magic.

EasyBCD is the only bootloader on the planet that gives end users full control over anything and everything that happens before their operating system boots, and supports more operating systems than any other bootloader on the planet.
