    In order to transition to DAZ loader, I would need to remove this age old BIE. But how? Been googling already with not much result.

    In D:\sources\$OEM$\$$\SETUP\SCRIPTS (dvd drive) there seems to be bie7_uninst.exe but the thing is that I don't actually have a physical disk of this, only ISO image for a virtual machine, which has later been transferred to a physical...

    So I'm wondering if there's a way to uninstall BIE without actually burning & booting the ISO. Tried as administrator in command prompt already, no go. (how do i even know if the loader is there anymore or not?)

    Ah, I cannot view that thread (ISP filtering?). Could you please post the download links to here? Preferrably all 3. Because I cannot access them through a proxy, through which I otherwise can at least read that thread...

    You can also view the loader - often called grldr or anything really - by showing hidden and system files in Windows Explorer temporarily.

    If you have the so called "hidden" 100 MB system partition it will be there and you need to temporarily give it a drive letter in disk management - type Disk management in "Search Programs and files" in start menu.

    You can just delete it - the loader I mean not the partition - and reboot - use your 7 DVD if problem booting but I have never had this problem.

    I only suggest this because you learn things by doing them yourself rather than letting a tool do it for you as the process is hidden from you.

    Thanks Rosco that's exactly the kind of help I was looking for, I prefer doing things myself as opposed to using readymade, to gain understanding and skill.
