Windows 7: EasyBCD: How to create absolute paths

EasyBCD: How to create absolute paths


My bootable NTFS Test Volume contains just the bootmgr.exe and the G:\boot\BCD file. In the BCD I got something like this:
device: ramdisk=[boot]\sources\BOOT.WIM,{99051b9e-c748-11e1-b1c7-14dae9e74180}
which is a Relative path with its root in G:\

However, this path is wrong as \sources\BOOT.WIM is located in my RECOVERY(F:\) partition. I've introduced the entry through EasyBCD's Add New Entry -> Portable/External Media -> WinPE -> Path , and then F:\sources\BOOT.WIM

On the other hand, if I edit my system partion's BCD, C:\boot\bcd, then all is ok and the driver's path is an Absolute path:
device: ramdisk=[F:]\sources\BOOT.WIM,{fec54f21-c74c-11e1-ada2-14dae9e74180}

So, how can I get an Absolute path into my Test Volume's G:\boot\BCD store ??

Thanks in advance,

Using Visual BCD Editor or bcdedit.

VBCDE can edit every single element of BCD - it's a general and professional tool like bcdedit - give it a try.
