Windows® 7 Dual Boot Manager
What is the role of dual boot manager in Windows 7 dual booting?
It is important to know about the Dual boot and the importance of the boot manager in Windows 7. Dual booting is one of the major aspects in Windows systems. In dual booting systems, the hard disk contains two Operating Systems in two different partitions. You can arrange the Operating System according to your needs. The boot manager is an application which is used to select the Operating System you need during start up. The boot manager could change the data in the Master Boot record. You can see various issues while using the dual boot system. This boot manager helps you to resolve all these issues. Boot manager can identify each of the partitions in the hard disk. Hence, if any issues occurs while booting the system, then each of the partitions will be checked by this boot manager and it makes correct changes in to this record.
Following are some of the dual boot issues in Windows 7 which can be solved with the dual boot manager:
- Boot failure
- Issues with the Master boot record
- Blue screen of death error
The boot failure issue occurs if the boot record in the system gets crashed in the system. If the boot options are changed in the CMOS during the dual booting of Windows XP with Windows 7, then it will result in boot failure. The changes in BIOS also will cause this sort of issues.
Issues with the Master boot record
MBR is actually the short form of Master Boot Record in the system. If this record is changed, then various issues might occur. These changes will affect the dual booting in Windows 7. Since this is the one which keeps the information related to the Operating System in the system, the changes in this record will produce various errors in the system. But, in dual booting, these records depend upon the boot manager which actually depends upon the user decision. So, the chances of incorrect changes in master boot record are more and thus, these types of errors occur. You can resolve the issue with the help of the boot manager. This will check the data in the boot record and arrange the values correctly.
Blue screen of death is one of the common issues that occurs in most the Windows based systems. If the dual booting is not performed well, then the Operating System gets corrupted and you will get the blue screen error. One of the reasons for this issue is the insufficient memory capacity in the system. If the system doesn’t have enough space to keep these two Operating Systems, then system displays this error. You have to improve the memory capacity with proper upgradation of memory.
