I have been the past few days recovering my multiboot Windows bootloader with the help of the EasyBCD support forum. I was concerned about my former Grub (I have Mint and Ubuntu installed but presently inaccessible) overwriting the Windows MBR if I restore it with Supergrub. The problems with the mutlboot menu began with Windows 8.1 apparently corrupting the multiboot menu. I ending up choosing to reformat Windows XP knowing what the result would be but not being able to successfully recover the XP by any of the other options that I was familiar with. One of the moderators on Neosmart Forum (EasyBCD) said this to me: "You can instruct the Linux install not to overwrite the MBR but to place grub in the Linux partition. That will protect the existing MS multiboot. You can then add a Linux entry to the BCD and EasyBCD will automatically locate it and set up everything necessary." I assume Neosmart (EasyBCD) are not expert in the Linux side of things. Can you point me to a step by step guide for doing this from the Linux Ubuntu viewpoint. I don't know if this can be done with a SuperGrub recovery disk or if I will need to reinstall Ubuntu. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
