Using TeraByte's BIBM to MultiBoot 3, or more OS's

I am calling an *Admin* audible--this topic has changed from *Ghost For Win7* to something more along the line of *Using TeraByte's BIBM for MultiBooting*.

So I am going to split this topic off to a new thread.

I have left the original posts below on the other thread.  I copied the posts starting at Reply #21 thru Reply #33 to this new thread.

BIBM is my favourite app and is installed in all of my computers. I use unlimited partitions but I don't expect you to use them. It took me 6 months before I was confident enough to leave limited primaries behind. So I'll discuss limited primaries.

Dan Goodell likes XOSL as a free boot manager. I have some good instructions if you would like to try it but I think BIBM is easier to setup and is well worth the money.

Yes, if you are limiting primaries you can just uninstall BIBM. The 8 MB partition is removed. If you are using unlimited primaries you have to reduce your primary partition count to 4 before BIBM can be uninstalled. BIBM doesn't write anything to the partitions so after uninstalling BIBM the partitions are unchanged.

You have 3 HDs with 3 OS. On your new big HD you would have 2 OS in Primary partitions, 1 OS in the extended partition along with a data partition. And the BIBM partition. You could have dozens of OS in the extended partition if you like.

When booted into Windows you will have a C: drive letter for the relevant OS and a drive letter for the data partition. All other partitions will be hidden.

Using Ghost 2003 from a boot disk you will have access to all partitions. BIBM included. You don't need to uninstall BIBM to use Ghost.

BIBM will do a thousand more things which aren't relevant to this discussion.

As mentioned earlier, you don't have to install OS on the new HD. Just copy the current OS to the new HD. You could use BIBM for this as it is a two click copy process. Or you could restore Ghost images.

@Brian...

Can I use 3 primary partitions and one extended?

#1 XP pro sp3
#2 XP pro sp3
#3 w7pro sp1
#4 extended logical-docs, logical-BIBM

is that the way?

You stated only two primaries... why?


Does the BIBM partition take one of the primaries or go into a logical by itself??

BIBM needs a primary partition. There is no problem with copying one of your OS into a logical volume in the extended partition. Let's say you would have one WinXP and one data partition in the extended partition.

OK... sounding better and better...

are you willing to give me a step by step of how to do what I want with one hdd holding 2 OSs and BIBM in primary partitions... and one OS and docs in the extended logicals???

I want to partition my drive before doing this... so how does the partitioning go for this??

This way I can see how this happens and then decide to bite my wallet Smiley

Standby.

So your computer is a laptop? Do you have a USB caddy to hold the current HDs for the copy process to the new HD or would you rather restore images?

OK. Do you have a spare HD so we could install BIBM and run some tests? BIBM has a free trial for 30 days so you only have to buy it if it works.

You can use the CD without installing BIBM. Use it with any of your HDs...

Boot from the BIBM CD and click Cancel
Click OK to enter Maintenance Mode

We can do the entire setup with the trial BIBM as it is fully functional. After 30 days you start to get Warnings. Activating with a registered CD is all you need to do to become registered. One click and you are registered. No further setup.

If you don't like it, uninstall and don't buy it.

When you are ready, can you let me know the size of each of the three OS partitions and the amount of Free Space in each partition? Also the size of your intended Data partition.
