BootitNG

Is BootitNG still useful, or does it have serious shortcomings when used
strictly as a partition manager with WIN 10?

When I tried to access a Win 7 x64 partition with NG to repartition
size, it could not recognize it. I used Win 7 itself since it can resize
it's own partition.

BIBM can do it as well.

Reason for question is that I own a copy of BING, which was used to set
up and control boot options between Windows 7 and XP.

It worked fine for that purpose, but now I have built a new computer on
which I will install WIN 10, but would like to also install my WIN 7
installation in a second partition, so a boot manager would again be
helpful.

UEFI isn’t quite too complicated. It has its ups and downs, but from my perspective it seems like there is more to love than hate. As long as OEMs don’t take away the user’s control over secure boot, I’m perfectly content with this newer system.
