Windows 7: Untangle my XP and Win7 Dualboot

Can EsyBCD create loaders for all current Windows versions (XP,Vista,Windows 7/8)
automatically so that the user has nothing to specify - no drive letters or whatever ?

Visual BCD Editor can do it.

What would you say about this Gregrocker ?

I've only read about Visual BCD editor what you've written about it, Boyans. But I'm sure it's good if you recommend it.

Thank you gregrocker that you trust my words.
Would you recommend a tool if you knew its violating copyright law ?

The question is if you would recommend it if knew it is violating copyright law.

I would seek Admin's advice for those type of issues, which can then be quoted with confidence as Forums' policy.
