Windows 7: Install BCD on XP/Ubuntu

11 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 & Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Beta
Install BCD on XP/Ubuntu

Again, a little off-topic, but this is kind of 7 related:
I want to install the BCD bootloader on my Toshiba Tecra m2 that currently has Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP (+ NTLDR) so I can boot linux and windows (with the help of easybcd). I own a 32bit 7 cd, and I have a 64bit 7 installation.

Also, if possible, I could use grub. But preferably BCD so I can use PLoP.
