Can FreeLDR be used as a replacement for BootMGR?

Post by Panarchy » Sun May 10, 2009 4:10 pm

Hello

I have Windows 7, Windows Vista & Windows Server 2008 (all 64-bit editions) installed.

Would it be possible for me to use FreeLDR instead of BootMGR on all of those partitions/os's?

If it is, please tell me how I can do so.

If it isn't please add this feature.

Thanks in advance,

Panarchy

No, support of Windows Server 2003 is a work in progress.

Ah...

Well do you know of any non-Vista/Win7/Server2008 bootloaders which can call the 64-bit kernel of: Windows 7, Windows Vista & Windows Server 2008?

If so, could you please suggest them to me?

Thanks in advance,

No bootloader besides the one from MS is capable of doing that. All others, like grub, chainload.

No others, at all?

Because I'm having some trouble installing to my logical partition, and getting properly configured, the Windows 7 BCD.

Any ideas?
