How do I access the legacy BCD editor?

Postby Edo820 » Thu Dec 01, 2011 8:51 pm

I'm using VISTA Home Premium. Using Dual Boot Pro I can access bcdedit.exe, but I can't change the file. I had installed a program that used linux, which installed a option at bootup to choose Windows Vista or the linux program. The uninstall didn't remove the boot option. How do I access the legacy editor so I can remove the linux boot option?

Boot to the Vista disk and go recovery console and enter
Code: Select all
bootrec /FixMbr
. It should clean that up.
