Managing Multi OS (Windows XP and Windows Vista) Boot: VistaBootPRO

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 17-May-2006 09:19

Microsoft Windows Vista introduces a new way of managing booting multiple OS platforms on a single computer. While Microsoft Windows XP (and earlier versions) relied on a file called BOOT.INI, Microsoft Windows Vista introduces the BCD registry concept.

The problem is that editing the BCD through BCDEDIT.EXE is a pain: it's a command line utility and with plenty of switches and options.

To help make life easier on this matter, the guys at Pro-networks released a small program called VistaBootPro, that brings a GUI to this program.


It runs on Windows Vista and Windows XP Pro (in which case you must have .Net Framework 2.0 installed).
