VistaBootPRO: What would you like it to be able to do?


By now you have probably installed Windows Vista a number of times and experienced some of the challenges presented when coming to terms with this new operating system from Microsoft.

Most likely you've also dual booted Windows Vista with your current OS, Windows XP.

With the experience you now have, please tell us what YOU would like to see as a capability or feature of VistaBootPRO.

Personally I'd very much like to see it somehow function with the Linux Bootloader (GRUB and LILO too if you guys can manage it).

Unforuntenly I haven't had time to play around with the released version of VistaBootPRO 3 (don't have Vista installed) but having worked with you guys in the testing I know how good it is.

Interface has come a long way from the original 1.0 and this program will definetly be a must have for Vista users [who mutiboot]

Keep up the good work!

Oh yeah, I'd like to see it move away from being just a Vista Bootloader tool to being a Bootloader tool.

The ablity to do all sorts of bootloader tasks (and the ability) to run without Vista would aid me a lot.

I mentioned above about the Linux Bootloader thingy - it'd be great if you guys added that function (solving a lot of problems that surely will come after Linux users install Vista). A Linux version would be nice if you take that step.

Hi Devs,

What a great and easy to use product ^*^


I'm sure PO'd at the "volsnap.sys" XP/Vista ( system- restore) fiasco that MS will not fix . XP erases all but the last SR points in Vista when booting between OS's
One of the fixes is to hide the drives from each other. The other fix is to use Vista- BitLocker.

I think a checkbox to hide Vista from XP and visa versa would be a real nice feature. I dont know if it is even possible to do in VBPro, but I thought it would be a highly useful addition.

Thanks for reading

I don't think there is an option to do that in Vista anymore (in BCD). It still could be possible though. Maybe theres a registry edit VBPRO could make or something - I don't know.
