 Hello,  That sounds very legitimete explanation. I did it the way Dr. Phoenix said but with no success Maybe a idea to look up the boot.ini and post it here ? Roelof Date: Sat, 18 Jun 2011 16:20:57 -0500

Roelof,



In reality, you setup should work but I still think this is because
WIndows is mucking up the boot sector or process. Did you use something
like Parted Magic to analyze what's the active partition and all this
stuff? I briefly read a blurb about dual-boot here
(http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=4966) that may be of use
but I think some of the boot stuff got changed in 9.0. When I used to
have multi boot systems I used to use System Commander but it's been
eons since I've used a boot manager. I'm not sure what to say going
forward. In reality, the a setting in boot.ini should be launching
PCBSD for you. Windows 7 has that boot sector protection junk unlike XP
and if it sees it's messed around with it'll complain or try to
"repair" itself.



Read the thing from Dr. Phoenix (about half way down):

  Oke,

 

No, 

Windows is on the first disk and pcbsd is on the second disk.

So there both on a logical partittiion.

 

Anyone a idea what happens here ?

And should I contact the developers of easybcd about this problem ?

I thought I read that Windows was the the first partition?

    Hello, 

 

why do you think it's not a logical partition.

 

I choose for use the whole disk so I think that the installer makes the
partitions the right way.

I've not done any playing with EasyBCD. Did it detect the FreeBSD
partition correctly? What is the exact text error you get when it tries
to boot?

      

  

      It looks like it.
      I have this choice:
       
      partition 1 (0xa5 - 57Gib)
       
      The exact message is 
       
      boot error

Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't BSD need to reside on a primary
partition? I don't recall reading that it can be booted off a logical
partition. At the very least, the bootloader has to be on the primary
partition.
