Running Hiren's 15 from HDD and Win7 boot loader
Posted 23 August 2012 - 02:26 PM
I've setting up my PC and I would like to have a multiboot configuration with Windows 7, Windows XP, Ubuntu and Hiren's.
I used the Windows 7 boot loader to make the trick, and used the EasyBCD software to manage it all.
It works well, but I cannot make the Hiren's iso run directly from HDD, although I followed all the tutorials about it I found.
My current partition table is rather complex:
/dev/sda1 hidden fat32 (recovery partition from the manifacturer)
/dev/sda2 ntfs with XP
/dev/sda3 ext4 with ubuntu
/dev/sda4 extended with:
/dev/sda5 ntfs with Win7
/dev/sda6 ntfs data partition
/dev/sda7 linux swap for ubuntu
/dev/sda8 fat16 with the copy of HBCD data, grub.exe, gldr and menu.lst as stated by tutorials
My boot partition is /dev/sda2, with the Win7 MBR installed.
I tried multiple ways to add the /dev/sda8 partition to boot (mainly using EasyBCD), but everytime I get an error about sda8 being not bootable.
Can someone help me?
Thank you very much.

Thank you, I'll try this new solution.
Does section 3.3 of http://www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/wee help?
You need to add the HBCD grub4dos menu.lst to the root of one of the partitions so grdlr will find it.
Currently I have a multiboot based on Windows 7, configured with EasyBCD. I can choose WIndows environments and a Ubuntu.
Selecting Ubuntu I can choose among the os and booting from some ISOs. I was able to configure GRUB to run clonezilla and system-rescue, but still HBCD is not working.
