Install Bootmanager

Previous  Next

Program:

Bootmanager / Install...

 

The installation process writes the actual bootmanager to the harddisk. During the process, entries of the master boot record partition table are copied and entered into the new BootStar partition table and the bootstrap is overwritten with the bootmanager.

 

Standard mode:

4 primary partitions can be created per hard disk.
Other harddisk partitioner must be used while the bootmanager BootStar is been installed.

 

Profi mode:

15 primary partitions can be created per hard disk.
No other harddisk partitioner must be used while the bootmanager BootStar is been installed.
The position in the master boot record may be changed.

 

You should build an emergency disk while installing the bootmanager. With this disk you are able to return the system in exactly in the same state like before installing the bootmanager.

 

The Bootmanager BootStar may be installed separately on every harddisk. If BootStar is not installed on the first harddisk, the bootprofiles can be selected only through the use of the command line options.

 

Note for the profi mode:

While BootStar is installed, no other harddisk partitioner must be used (e.g., FDisk or PartitionMagic)!!!
