Does anyone know if it is possible to
a) change the text on the Windows 7 boot screen in a multi boot situation from "Previous Version of Windows" to "Windows XP" for instance.
b) To actually password protect the menu so that only a certain user could boot into a particular OS .
I don't really want to use a 3rd party boot manager - but of course I suppose the other philosphy is if a user is not authorised to a particular application then why show it on the menu as a possible choice.
There should be some way of getting a logon prompt at boot and depending on the users privilege level display the boot options.
Another question -- On Windows 7 the XP partition is hidden (in Windows explorer).
On XP the Windows 7 system files are "viewable" as a separate disk drive. I like the hidden partition idea much better as the OS shouldn't be aware of the other OS.
This to me seems a not very good idea to allow the possibility of "tampering" with system files - especially by a previous version of an OS.
I could almost understand it if Windows 7 showed the XP system disk but not the other way round.
