Dual Booting (MBR only)

 
If you want to dual-boot (or triple-boot) from your USB drive, e.g. Windows To Go & Easy2Boot OR Ubuntu (wubi) & Easy2Boot, you can do it as follows:
 
1. Install the OS first (e.g. Ubuntu (wubi) or Windows To Go, etc.) onto your USB drive
Note: E2B requires ptn #4 to be unused (and ptn #3 should be free too, if you want some other features like linux booting with persistence)
If possible, use FAT32 or NTFS for the 1st partition.
2. Ensure it works OK
3. Extract the E2B download directly onto the root of the USB drive (don't overwrite any existing files)
4. Install grub4dos using RMPrepUSB - Install Grub4dos - MBR=Yes  (do not install to the PBR)
5. Replace the contents of the menu.lst file in the root of the E2B drive, e.g. some example menu entries are shown below...
 
default 0
timeout 5

title  WUBI \n Boot to WUBI

chainloader /wubildr.mbr
 
title Boot to Windows \n Boot to WinToGo
chainloader /bootmgr

title Easy2Boot \n Boot to E2B
set grub=_ISO/e2b/grub

configfile /_ISO/e2b/grub/menu.lst
 
title Boot to 2nd partition \n Boot from PBR
chainloader (hd0,1)+1
 
title Boot to 1st partition \n Boot from PBR
chainloader (hd0,0)+1
