Description

Here's an utility to modify or backup/restore your MBR(Master Boot Record) or PBR(Partition Boot Record), it's name is BOOTICE. Wish you like it.

Using BOOTICE, you can easily change your MBR/PBR to another type. For example, install Grub4DOS to your MBR or PBR, install NTLDR or BOOTMGR to your PBR, install SYSLINUX to PBR, install the MS-DOS boot record to your PBR, and so on.

And, BOOTICE allows you to rename the boot name, e.g., you can rename Grub4Dos's boot file name from "grldr" to "ggldr", NTLDR boot record's boot filename, from "NTLDR" to "SMLDR" or sth. you like.

It also has the ability to re-partition and format your flash disk drive. You can even seperate your flash disk to 2 partitions(only 1 is accessible in Windows, the other one is hidden for private data or boot images).
