    there ar so few working code examples on the internet, So when I learn
    somthing new of finally get somtheing to work, I like to share it. I spend
    more time searching for how to do somthing then actually writing code.

    so to copy grldr to C: (where the windows is installed)
    or to the hidden partition ?
    also if I choose the bootmgr option, how and where to copy it?

    just want to be sure, I have done this already (I copy it to the hidden partition volume).

    nice tool btw..
    did you write it in VB?

    copy to the drive that bootmgr is on,
    most of the time that is the hidden partition.
    you will also have to run

    Code:
    bootinst.exe /nt60  "your driveletter"
    
    to install the grldr file.

    to install the bootmgr file you will have to rename
    the existing bootmgr file bootmgr.orig is a good
    choice you will get a bunch of uac prompts but
    eventualy it will get renamed then copy the bootmgr
    file to the drive.

    IMPORTANT!!!!

    grldr cannot chainload a hacked bootmgr make sure
    you replace the original bootmgr before you boot
    to a grldr file

    if you screw up the usual fix will get you bootable again.

    Code:
    bootsect.exe /nt60 "driveletter of the partiton that bootmger is on"
    

    yes the app is in VB

    why do a loader builder? and why not do one application and put the feature into the other one?

    its already been done here

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/9169

    this is more a code sample, If you look at the source
    you will learn how to store a resource file in an executable
    then extract and write it to disk.

    I chopped a GRLDR file apart and then the parts are connotated back
    together with your choice of SLIC

    Code:
    COPY /b part1 + SLIC + part2 GRLDR 
    
    will do the same thing

    Thanks, I think showing how it done is better for the community, then
    hiding it.

    Im also seeing more source code downloads then binaries.

    does your loader support arguments???
    eg. makeloader.exe /hp /grldr
    something of that sort??
