Editors' reviewThis handy application will configure and install multiple operating systems onto your PC without going to the BIOS Setup, but it only supports up to three OSes and requires careful analysis for most effective use. MasterBooter is a DOS-based program that enables the user to add multiple operating systems to a single hard drive. We found it works fine in preparing multiple installations of operating systems on your hard drive. However, we were disappointed it created a boot menu of Windows 2000 on our computer even though we don't have that specific OS. It includes the efdisk and mrescue programs that partition multiple hard drives and generate bootable rescue disks. It also can be password-protected to add security. This program, which lacks a much-needed help file, would work best for intermediate users who want to maintain multiple operating systems on their hard drives.
MasterBooter is a boot manager which can be used to install and maintain more operating systems on a PC. System names, passwords are customizable. You can set the delay time, default system and beeping. It also has FAT hiding support, partition protecting from unauthorized access and customizable menu colors. Supports nearly all known operating systems, like Win9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003/2008/Vista, DOS, Linux, OS/2, OS X, BeOS, Solaris, and FreeBSD.
