    Many loaders are compressed executable archives, try to rename to 7z and open with archiver.
    Then look in the command file to see what will happen when you run the loader... You will be amazed what will happen... ;)

    Code:
    @echo off
    for %%X in (C: D: E: R:) do (
    if exist %%X\bootmgr bootsectgrldr.exe /nt60 %%X
    )
    pause
    
    ok ..
    but im still unclear as to how this will work with grub already installed in another partition?
    Does it append anything to it, overwirte it, turn first then boot the other grub, what?

    Yup. Exactly what I was messing with a week ago. Your best chance is wow7 (latest). It's the only one who uses the latest grub 0.4.4 unmodified! I myself had a grub multi boot environment set up before this loader stuff came up. Wow7 would be your best bet here. Hazars and the Orbit I've tried did not work cause they do not let you have your own menu.lst. They also unhide all partitions before boot and where grub 0.4.3 based.
