If you want to install a second OS or manage your boot configuration without directly editing the BCDEdit file, this guide is for you.
Make changes to the Windows Vista BCD Registry Quickly and Easily
Windows Vista has made editing the Boot.ini (which does not feature in Vista) file somewhat complicated for most users.
VistaBootPRO was developed to make changes to the Windows Vista Boot Configuration Data (BCD) registry quickly and easily, doing the job in a fraction of the time it would take using alternatives.
The only other way to edit the BCD is to use the command prompt application “bcdedit.exe,” located in the Windows\system32 folder of Windows Vista, which requires users to become familiar with the ins and outs of the bcdedit.exe switches and options, leaving many frustrated users in its path.
VistaBootPRO allows users to easily and neatly organize their boot configuration entries from within all flavors of Windows.
