    Have EAZ-FIX on one of my two hard drives. Both hdds' run win2kpro. Now created dual-boot by modifying boot.ini file. When select hard drive with EAZ-FIX it's icon is not in the system tray. Click Start, Programs, EAZ-FIX, Application Console - get message box with - 'EAZ-FIX is uninstalled'. Double-click EAZTray and icon flickers on and off in system tray. Can display the help information. Uninstall and reinstall EAZ-FIX. When restart machine can't access hdd with EAZ-FIX. Worked on dual-boot and eventually accessed the hard drive. The same difficulty exists. It seems EAZ-FIX does not support dual-boot.

    This is from EAZ-FIX FAQ:

    Can I install EAZ-FIX on dual boot systems?
    Yes, you need to select Custom Setup and install EAZ-FIX in each OS. Check for details in EAZ-FIX User's Guide.

    You can also specify which partitions it will monitor. I have it installed on two partitions but have it only monitoring one of them.

    Option appears during installation when you choose multiboot option and you have it already installed it on all other OS's. You choose the first option ("this is not a multiboot system or you have it already installed on all other OS's"). The next window will show the partitions EAZ-fix is installed on and you can tick untick the ones you wish to montior. However, you must monitor the partition you are doing the final install in, so install EAZ-Fix first on partitions you don't wish monitor.
