14. Windows Vista Boot Manager - BCDedit

The familiar boot.ini file of previous Windows versions has been replaced in Windows Vista with a new boot file called BCDedit. It is unfortunate that, unlike, boot.ini the BCDedit file is not the easiest of files to actually edit. Some would say that the boot.ini file was a nightmare, well BCDedit is absolutely horrendous.

While, for the more knowledgeable, editing the BCDedit file will not cause many major headaches, for those that are reluctant to enter the Command Line arena there is a more user friendly shareware substitute in the guise of Vista Boot Pro (Vista Boot Pro). Or, if you prefer a freeware product, there is always EasyBCD .
