Booting OS not on first drive

Mon Mar 18, 2013 5:00 pm

If I instruct BIBM to boot an OS which is not on my first drive where BIBM is installed, does that drive have to be converted from an MBR drive to an EMBR drive ? I either missed this information in the user's manual or it was not specified there.

No, not unless you want to control the mbr order or visiblity of items.
However, don't forget to use the "swap" option on those boot items as most
require it (older linux versions could boot just fine from alternate drives
without the swap option, many of the newer ones don't without the swap
option).
