Installing BIBM...

INSTALL
Boot from the BIBM boot disk and click Cancel
Click OK to enter maintenance mode
Click Partition Work and make sure you have at least 8 MB of Free Space on HD0 (Free Space inside an Extended Partition doesn't count)
Resize the final partition 8 MB smaller if you don't already have 8 MB of Free Space.


Restart and boot from the BootIt BM boot disk
Setup... Click OK to install BootIt ...
Setup... Don't put a tick in Change all MBR type drives to EMBR and click No to not "enable support for more than 4 primary partitions". If you already have 4 primary partitions you will have to click Yes.
Setup... Click Yes to let setup choose the partition for you (even though there isn't a partition yet)
Setup... Click Yes to install to a dedicated partition. No tick in Install to any drive
Setup... Click OK to begin
Setup... Click OK for Setup completed successfully
click Close

Further to Reply #44, you don't need to install further OS to multi-boot. Let's say You have Win7 and a Data partition (and BIBM) on the drive and plenty of Free Space. You can Copy the Win7 partition to the free space several times, say five times. Now you have six Win7 OS which you can use independently of each other.

Using TBOSDT to see your partitions...

In the All Apps menu (Win10) click "TeraByte OS Deployment Tool Suite Professional". Enter..

list hd 0 /f /u

If it says "Invalid drive" go to C:\Program Files\TeraByte Unlimited\TeraByte OSD Tool Suite Pro\win
Right click tbosdtw.exe, Properties, Compatibility tab. Put a tick in "Run this program as an administrator". The command line will now work for subsequent...

list hd 0 /f /u

You probably already know but I don't use IFL for image creation. I use IFW for hot imaging. I've restored (not created) thousands of images that were created while Windows was running. Never an issue. My computer creates a new differential image daily, while I'm using the computer. It's scheduled so I don't see it happening.

That's my intention. When or if you need it. I'll post what I think could be helpful in the future.

You will probably never do this but for your information you can use BIBM to convert your UEFI/GPT system to MBR.

Set the BIOS for Legacy mode
Boot a BIBM UFD/CD

Run
chgdtype.tbs
Convert a Physical drive
HD1 (if booted from a BIBM UFD)
HD0 (if booted from a BIBM CD)
Configure the "Win10" partition to be active
.... Will say Win8 if that's what you have
.... By not creating a "System reserved" partition you free up one primary partition slot
You see a confirmation message saying the MSR and ESP will be deleted, press Enter

Boot into Windows
Disk Management shows 2 partitions. Recovery and Win10. To remove the Recovery partition and retain the Recovery Environment...

1. In Win10 or Win8.
2. Open an Administrator Command Prompt.
3. (The following Disables WinRE)
reagentc /disable
dir /a C:\Windows\System32\Recovery

You should see Winre.wim in the Recovery folder along with other files

4. Boot BIBM and delete the 450 MB Recovery partition
5. Boot into Windows
6. (From an Administrator Command Prompt the following Enables WinRE)
reagentc /enable
dir /a C:\Recovery

You should see a WindowsPE folder in addition to a Logs folder and ReagentOld.xml

Thanks for Your hints. I have never done more than a dual boot of XP and W7. That was accomplished not by me but by the W7 installer.

When I upgrade W7 to W10, it will probably/hopefully still be a dual boot but of XP and W10. Not that I use XP for much these days but there are programs that work better in there than in W7/W10.

I'll consider that option but I'm suspicious of anything "hot". A friend of mine used Norton 360 and didn't know how to control it. He only installed it and let it loose. He gave me a call when his 1 TB HDD was running out of space and he didn't know "what or why". It was Norton 360 and its scheduled backups that during 6 months had used 800 GB space ... Roll Eyes ... !

A few weeks ago, I reinstalled his W10 on a SSD and forbade him to use anything other than a firewall and antivirus solution. I left him with Defender and the Windows Firewall but I think that he'll get Norton Security.

Just a few words on deleting undeletable files/folders with TeraByte Explorer.

Run TeraByte Explorer from BIBM. This can be done from an IFL UFD.
Mount/Unmount a drive path identifier
Select the OS partition
Ctrl-O for options
Space bar to select View hidden files and View system files
Browse to the folder and select it
Press the Delete key on your keyboard
Choose Yes and wait a short while
Done

It should be. If you wanted to restore your Win7 image to free space on the drive you could have a triple boot. If that is of any use. Maybe not.

Would that be legal? I mean, after doing the free upgrade from W7 to W10 ... Lips Sealed ... would it be legal to run both?

IFW is safe. It only creates the images that you want it to create. IFW can either use PHYLock (TeraByte driver) or Microsoft's VSS to lock the drive prior to creating the image. As I understand the bitmap snapshot is created in a fraction of a second and no matter what you do thereafter, it won't be included in the image.

Yes, it is legal and accepted by Microsoft. You are only running one Microsoft OS at a time if you use BIBM as the boot manager. If you run a Microsoft OS in a Virtual machine you are using two OS at a time and require two licenses.

Also, if you copy your Win10 several times and boot each with BIBM, each will be Activated by Microsoft. If you then install another Win10 to that drive and boot it with BIBM, it will be Activated by Microsoft.

Edit... I've copied Win10 from HD0 to HD1 and booted it with BIBM. It was Activated by Microsoft.

I think that one of each would be enough for my needs. My switch from XP to W7 was slow because it was a dual boot and making a dual boot of W7 and W10 would make that transition slow too.

When I have upgraded from W7 to W10, I'll probably configure and use W10 and only have the possibility to roll back to W7 as an option if I don't like W10. When I make the final decision to go for W10 permanently, I'll get an SSD and do a clean installation.

(One has to like W10 because there's an end to W7 too.)

The little I have used W10 on the laptop is encouraging. I have not tested the "classic start menu" that can be downloaded and installed but using it "as is", is a question of finding the "stuff from W7" in its new place.

The "apps" versus "programs" is still a mystery ... Roll Eyes ... !
