8 EasyBCD
Longtime XP users may remember that changing the way the OS booted in multiboot systems required them merely to do a little digging and then edit a boot.ini file. With Vista, unfortunately, that approach is no longer possible. An almost incomprehensible command line program called BCDEdit rules the roost.
EasyBCD serves as a front end to BCDEdit, enabling you to change the important settings on your multiboot PC. This free program comes with a diagnostics and troubleshooting tool as well, to help you recover from a multiboot system gone bad. But be warned: you should be familiar with multiboot menus before using this program.
