    Thanks trott3r. This is very good software. I have used the free version for several years
    and it has always been solid with great features. The Pro version is even better equipped
    and this is a nice deal. I used the free version bootcd also that got the job done. Thanks again!

    Thanks and does this free pro version have a bootable ISO that I can place in my BCD in Windows 7 to use outside of Windows if need be?

    For some reason, that ISO of ome version does not load from my BCD after editing it using EasyBCD. The program just won't start after it does its bootup routine. Don't know why but would have loved to have it in the bootup list. Anybody else had troubles with it and thanks.

    I haven´t used the ISO in the way you describe, but to build boot USB Flash drives (using Rufus) of CDs. The results have been mixed. In this computer, desktop with Windows 7 x64, the mouse cursor movement is uncontrollable. In a laptop with Windows 7 it works well. In an UEFI laptop with Windows 8.1, it only boots in legacy mode, but otherwise works well.

    Gary, I just downloaded the latest ISO of the HOME edition and installed it into the BCD using EasyBCD... installed it as an ISO. It BOOTed fine and worked perfectly (it's a LINUX OS).

    Hi Gary :)

    I also use EasyBCD to create bootable ISO's on flash drives. For Partition Wizard, while creating the entry in EasyBCD, I have always selected "Load from memory" instead of "Run from disk". This has always worked fine for me. Some ISO's I have had to do some going back and forth to get them to boot correctly, if they did not work using the setting "Load from memory", I would try it again with "Run from disk" and usually it will work one way or another, but there are some ISO's that simply will not work properly outside of the typical boot cd or having the program create its own bootable flash drive or UFD.

    Most do work, and in regards to Partition Wizard, choosing "Load from memory" has always worked for me. It should work also with "Run from disk", but I have always used the "Load from memory" setting while adding the entry.

    Hope that helps in some way :)

    Jim

    My download was an EXE in a ZIP file (minitool.zip) for $0.00.

    Guys, thanks for your help but this ISO just won't boot via my Win 7 Pro x64 EasyBCD setup here. All Terabyte ISOs work fine along with others but not this one, just briefly flashes on screen but does not show the program launching after countdown, tried the various options in EasyBCD and tried the options for display in the startup section for Paritition Wizard but no go here.

    So, what's wrong with the executable linked to in the opening post?
    It says that it is 100% free.

    They should have sent you to a link where you subscribe to a MiniTool newsletter. When that was complete, they sent you another download link for the software and a license.

    This is the LINK they send you to, you supply the email address you used at WindowsDel.com, subscribe to the list and they send you the license code.

    Very strange.

    I ended getting a license code for the executable.
    I am not sure how you managed to get the ISO via the email.
    My email didn't take me to an ISO.

    Plus, why ISO?
    Is it just a bootable CD?

    By the way. That link you posted didn't take me to an ISO either. Very confusing. :confused:

    I, like you, received instructions to register in their mail group then I got a link to the INSTALLER and a license code.

    The ISO didn't come via email, it's available as a FREE download from the page link (at the bottom of the page) I 1st I sent to you. The ISO link itself is HERE...

    Yes, it's a LINUX-based BOOTable CD.
