File Category: Tools

The best tool for editing MBR, PBR, BCD and UEFI BCD, sector edit, VHD creator, etc.

I want to also comment that some/long time ago I read a post from the author saying: if you put a newer version of grub4dos into same folder where BootIce is, this new version will be applied, It is highly possible same applies for Grub but haven't tested, if some one can confirm this about Grub, please let us know.

It is sad to me to tell you this fantastic tool is not working to its full capacity on this very last version, sorry I didn't notice it as I allways install my OSs on MBR/legacy partition/format (to use grub4dos to load some Isos from HD, just in case of troubles), I never noticed this issue, but now a very hight reputable member is commenting this version has an issue, (I can't reproduce it myself, but I do not have any doubts of his words, quoted his message sended to me by PM).

 

Hi alacran,

 

BootIce v1.3.4 does NOT allow me to Add UEFI boot entries, which I need for booting from Portable USB in UEFI mode with Grub2.

 

BOOTICE v1.3.3 is working OK for me and can create New UEFI boot entries in my machine.

 

Just to let you know that version 1.3.4 has an issue.

 

Regards,

 

wimb

Good, then please you (or the mentioned member) could be so kind as to find and upload a version 1.3.3 that works.

 

I have (and I am attaching) two versions x86 (I have not the x64 corresponding ones):

BOOTICEx86_v1.33_20140807.rar

BOOTICEx86_v1.332_2015-02-16.rar

Hi Wonko,

 

Here is BOOTICE version 1.33 that allows via UEFI Tab to Add New boot entries to your machine.

 

In case of Portable SSD then UEFI Grub2 boot option is not auto generated like e.g. Windows Boot Manager.

Which is good :) , though it is NOT 1.33 (2014-08-07) but rather v1.332 (2015-02-16), based on comparing the date of the files with the one I posted.

Anyway now even those using 64-bit only can have the same fun with UEFI [1] as those running x86.

[1] if anything connected with EFI/UEFI can be considered "fun" as opposed to the more common definition of "worst nightmare you can have (only worse)" ;)

Looking on the backup of my collection of portables found (x86 & x64) BootIce v1.3.3.2 Build 2015-02-16 (same version posted by wimb), and it was uploaded to forum download repository, since I have noticed the link on program to http://www.ipauly.comis not working anymore, and this is one of those precious gems we need to preserve for posterity.

 

The name of this topic was automatically changed when I uploaded BootIce v1.3.3.2 Build 2015-02-16 on Forum Downloads section.

So, the new evolution is INSTEAD of ADDING the 1.3.3.2 BESIDES the later (buggy as it might be) 1.3.4 is to REMOVE 1.3.4.  :w00t:

 

The 1.3.4 is still on the download page:

http://reboot.pro/fi...-bootice-v1332/

 

BUT obscurely listed as "previous version", not many people looking for 1.3.4 will be able to find it:

http://reboot.pro/in...download&id=935

 

I am re-attaching it anyway, just in case (files date 2016-06-16).

Excellent thread...

Definitely bookmarking!

 

Bootice is definitely one of my top handy portable tools, next to Rufus and a few others.

Clearly (my) (IT) life would be different without these tools.

 

A must have, clearly.

 

To quote one of my fav movies (before my twenties...).
