EasyBCD extends and revamps the Windows BCD bootloader. Setting up and configuring a dual-boot between Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, older versions of Windows such as XP & 2003, Linux, Ubuntu, BSD, and macOS is a breeze. You just point and click and EasyBCD does the rest.

EasyBCD is geared for users of all kinds. Whether you just want to add an entry to your old XP partition or want to create a duplicate for testing purposes; if you're interested in debugging the Windows Kernel or septuple-booting your seven test operating systems, EasyBCD is the key.

  • Boot anything. Windows, Linux, Mac, & BSD. Boot both from and into USB drives, ISO images, virtual disks, and more.
  • Boot anywhere. Create bootable USB sticks with repair utilities that you can take with you anywhere.
  • Protect against disaster. Create entries to boot into recovery utilities or safe mode to prepare for a rainy day.
  • Painless editing. Add, rename, remove, configure, and reorder entries at whim.
  • Solve difficult problems. Use EasyBCD to troubleshoot Windows, back up and repair the bootloader, and more.
  • Powerful scripting with NeoGrub. You'll have the power to hide partitions, change active flags, and create complex boot scenarios.
