NTLDR cannot be used to boot into Windows Vista or 7 — to do that you must install the new BCD bootloader.Generally speaking, the only time you’d want to install this bootloader to the MBR is if/when you want to completely remove Windows Vista/7 from your system.The new Windows bootmgr/bcd bootloader is installed to your first-boot hard drive’s MBR the first time you install a “BCD OS” – Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 – and every time thereafter it is updated or rewritten depending on its status.
Without keeping your drivers updated, you risk hardware failures and more.
Driver Inspector keeps all your drivers up to date.
Did you know that the original CD you have, most likely will NOT contain the most up to date driver available?
Windows automatically updates itself quite frequently, and when it does your hardware may require up to date drivers..
Easy BCD can be used regardless of whether or not the BCD bootloader is installed to the MBR, but in order for any of the settings visible in Easy BCD to take place upon reboot, the MBR must be configured to use the BCD.
The Legacy Windows Bootloader, or NTLDR, is used to boot legacy versions of Windows.The software runs on Windows 9x, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Linux x86.Two installation files are available: one with Java Run-time Environment (JRE) integrated and one without.Some cases where you might need to update the MBR and bootsector with Easy BCD: Please note: Using this page will overwrite any existing MBR!If you are using a 3rd party MBR like Grub or Darwin, don’t worry, Easy BCD can be used instead.The primary charter for that staff is to support the USB Implementers Forum member companies with Developers Conferences, Spec Technical Support and Compatibility Workshops.
