    [ubuntu] Re: Dual Boot - WIN 7 and Linux using bcdedit

    This is what EasyBCD does automatically when you DON'T use the checkbox for "GRUB isn't installed to the MBR"

    It's only when you use the checkbox that you get text on the screen.

    [ubuntu] Re: Triple Booting Win7 Xp ubuntu problem

    EasyBCD doesn't touch the MBR or the bootsector, so the MBR would be the standard Windows MBR. It just loads the bootsector of the active partition on the boot disk.
