I've read a couple posts. Pretty much I don't got time for tedius particular os install procedures, configuring files or dos commands. In the past I've been able to dual/tri boot different Ms os's without a problem and have monkeyed around with partition software a bit without problems. Now I pretty much just want something simple & solid. My immediate plans aren't to have a ton of different OS's but want a package thats robust and handles this task well. Generally I'll be starting with a Vista OS and/or XP os. Might follow with some linux, BSD or whatever. *I don't want to have to deal with a boot menu that can't handle change or craps out when put to the test. *I want a program that has some type of recovery mechanism/cd JIK things go wrong and the boot menu flakes, security, NON-OS dependant. *Password protect & renaming the OS items in the menu. *I did read through some posts that IMO really didn't address all these concerns, though this discussion was good. Also I visited arconis boot manager & bootit pages, but theres only so much you can get from reading someones particular problem and product descriptions. No, I'd like to not have to trial and rather ask since I know what I want, so I can choose right the first time and get it over with, if need be I'll buy and don't care if its free and/or bloatware. *solidarity, a product that will be around and does updates JIK any future peculiarities can only be addressed by code correction. From the 2 product pages I like the keyword "non-destructable" and the add-on's bootit package has (though I doubt I can appreciate the extra complication). In the arconis page I liked the fact that it atleast hinted to all the functionality I seek though it didn't explicitly express it the way I did. Comments / suggestions appreciated. Thank you for your time!
