    Re: Ubuntu alongside Windows 7

    Yes i knew that i installed GRUB to PBR because i wanted to use the Windows Boot loader to handle the boot sequence. Actually i don't want to use EasyBCD to edit boot records, instead i will prefer the command line (or something like boot.ini in earlier version of Windows).
    Live CD is with me but currently i am replying from Windows session. Will you please help me with the Command Line instead of EasyBCD ?

    Thanks & Regards

    I have seen some do the command line with XP by copying the PBR to a file and loading that somehow. Not sure you can even do that with Windows 7. But you would somehow have to manually edit BCD and tell it to load PBR file.

    But Why? Grub works just fine and for those that insist on using Windows they use EasyBCD.

    If you do a totally custom menu in grub2, you can have that.

    As I said I do not know how to do that. I think that is a EasyBCD type screen?
