Changing Names ofseveral earlier OSs

Changing Names ofseveral earlier OSs

Postby garyg » Fri Jun 20, 2008 2:32 pm

Hello,

I have a server running 3 OSs.
I loaded Windows Server 2003, XP, and Vista.

All are operational. I would like to change the name on the boot loading screen from "Earlier version of Windows" to the OS names.
I see there is a spot to add an OS, what I am not understanding is what do I name the "earlier versions" part.

Thanks!

Start VBP
Go to Manage OS Entries tab
Highlite Earlier version of Windows
toward middle of page you will see where the Earlier version of Windows will appear in a box
check the box "rename OS entry" and type in the name you want to change it to
click the button at bottom right "Apply Update"
Game Over!!!!!!!!
