    NT versions of MS Windows can multi-boot Linux by its boot loader NTLDR. The steps are summarized in Task E4 of Just Booting tips.

    I have been looking at Vista's new boot manager and use it boot Linux. The basics has not changed. The key features are using the bcdedit.exe to carry out 4 main steps (first 2 are done in Linux).

    • The Linux must has a boot loader, either Lilo or Grub, in its root partition.
    • The first sector of 512 bytes of the Linux partition is copied into the partition where Vista's bootmgr resides.
    • Vista BCDedit is informed of the name of the Linux. An identifier is issued by BCDedit.
    • User declares the identifier as a device boot.
    • User informs BCDedit the filename of the Linux's first sector.
    • User informs BCDedit the booting order of the Linux

    In a nutshell Vista chainloads a Linux same as Grub or Lilo. However while Linux chainloads another system at the +1 position (starting from the second sector and load the entire boot sector) Vista only loads the first sector nothing else.

    This is more to do with MS attitude towards other operating systems. It is a message saying I don't support you guys and there is no way I would come out to read your partition and fetch your boot loader. If you want me to boot you then place the first sector on a plate and deliver it to my "C" drive.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Implementation

    The best Linux for work with a Vista is possibly the current version of Slax which automatically mounts every partition it finds, already shipped with ntfs-3g so writing on ntfs partitions is seamless, offers root privilege to the user and permits user a complete freedom in the graphic desktop.

    Thus if Vista is already mounted in /mnt/sda2 one can copy the first sector of any LInux partition, say sda7, to the "C" drive of Vista directly bt terminal command
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/sda7 of=/mnt/sda2/[COLOR="Green"][b]sda7.bin[/b] [/COLOR] bs=512 count=1
    The binary file used is "sda7.bin".

    Thereafter there are 4 steps in Vista to implement the booting. The work is done in Command Prompt but must be run as the adminstrator. Just right click the "command prompt" and select "Run as Adminstrator". Vista will drop you straight into c:\Windows\system32 directory where the control program bcdedit.exe resides.

    Step-1 Vista BCDedit is informed of the name of the Linux.

    This is done by command
    Code:
    bcdedit /create /d "[B][COLOR="Green"]Linux_in_sda7[/COLOR][/B]" /application BOOTSECTOR
    [COLOR="orange"]The entry [B]{c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}[/B] was successfully created.[/COLOR]
    In the above only the Green bit is the input. The second line in orange is the response by Vista bcdedit. The entry {c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff} is internally generated by bcdedit sequentially as a unique identifer which must be used in the next 3 steps.

    Step-2 User declares the identifier as a device boot.

    This is by command
    Code:
    bcdedit /set [B]{[COLOR="sienna"]c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}[/COLOR][/B] device boot
    Step-3 User informs BCDedit the filename of the Linux's first sector.

    This is by command
    Code:
    bcdedit /set [B]{[COLOR="sienna"]c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}[/COLOR][/B] PATH [B][COLOR="Green"]\sda7.bin[/COLOR][/B]
    Step-4 User informs BCDedit the booting order of the Linux

    This is by command
    Code:
    bcdedit /displayorder [B]{[COLOR="sienna"]c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}[/COLOR][/B] /addlast
    The complete response the command prompt looks like this
    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>[COLOR="blue"]bcdedit /create /d "Linux_in_sda7" /application BOOTSECTOR[/COLOR]
    The entry {c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff} was successfully created.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>[COLOR="blue"]bcdedit /set {c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff} device boot[/COLOR]
    The operation completed successfully.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>[COLOR="blue"]bcdedit /set {c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff} PATH  \sda7.bin
    [/COLOR]The operation completed successfully.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>[COLOR="blue"]bcdedit /displayorder {c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}  /addlast[/COLOR]

    Windows Boot Manager

    locale                  en-US
    inherit                 {globalsettings}
    default                 {current}
    displayorder            {current}
                            {c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier              {current}
    device                  partition=C:
    path                    \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description             Windows Vista
    locale                  en-US
    inherit                 {bootloadersettings}
    osdevice                partition=C:
    systemroot              \Windows
    resumeobject            {e8709fb7-fa5f-11db-be4d-e219ece5282e}
    nx                      OptOut
    
    Real-mode Boot Sector
    ---------------------
    identifier              [COLOR="sienna"][B]{c4c13df3-7949-11dc-98f8-81e4e48608ff}[/B][/COLOR]
    device                  boot
    path                    \sda7.bin
    description             Linux_in_sda7
    
    C:\Windows\system32>
    Lastly I used the command "bcdedit /enum" to list the booting choices, which are just Vista and the new Linux I added. In the above the blue bits are commands while the rest is response by Vista.

    For using Vista to boot more Linux distros it pays to write a script to automate the process, as I did in here for booting 150+ Linux.

    Another masterful tome, saikee. Perhaps you should go to work for MS to help them implement their seeming new-found interest in interoperability.

    Elvandil,

    There are quite a few sites and forums showing how a Linux can be booted by Vista. I am just making a connection of it with NTLDR and the Linux boot loaders.

    NTLDR has a limit of booting no more than 10 images because its static screen. I think BCDedit has no limit as it fires up a booting menu of 158 choices. Its booting screen can only show 6 entries at any one time in a scrolling fashion.

    The 158-system menu has 65,000 characters and I don't think this forum can take it. Nevertheless the same menu in EasyBCD is only 25,000 characters long so I post it here.

    Vista occupies the Choice No.1. The rest was generated by a python script. The Linux were "sourced" from the 145-system thread I wrote earlier.

    Code:
    There are a total of 158 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
    Bootloader Timeout: 1000 seconds.
