    I am not sure I post in the right forum - apologies - but here is what I need:

    - 1st partition - Windows 7 system (64 bit)
    - 2nd partition - YUMI Multiboot (Don't have credits to post a link, so Google it; FAT32, with a Windows 7 - 64 bit install included as well)

    Is there an easy way to accomplish this? Is it possible at all?

    Oh come on ... why do you need this setup? Inquiring minds want to know.

    OP edited.

    It is only temporarily needed. (BIOS only updates from a 32 bit system) But partition 1 and 2 still needed as it is - for obvious reasons. ;) (That is: to play with various Linux distors and it is much faster - on my SSD - than plugging in USB sticks) Is there a solution for that?

    easybcd 2.2 shall do this for windows menu to show linux u custom add (grub2 not legacy grub) but to have windows bootmenu take over from linux installs.. u have to write MBR of 7 in it first.

    boot hirensbootcd.org 15.2 and see if u can flash there if no DOS alternative which is preferred.

    Sorry, I don't 100% understand your non-academic English. (I am not a native speaker.)

    Do you suggest that
    - EasyBCD is part of Hiren 15.2? I did not find it.
    - Or I can install EasyBCD on Hiren 15.2? I couldn't do it.

    Else?

    neither.. and be glad i answered this with the insult of 'non-academic English"

    easybcd is for windows boot sector. get it a neowin.net

    after u installed windows, then linux to HDD linux boot menu takes over. notthe windows boot menu.
    boot windows 7 from that menu.. then install easybcd 2.2

    now open it and go to BCD Deployment click Write MBR.
    now it lets windows bootmenu show.. but linux is misign from the menu. go to ADD new entry .. click linux. drop menu down to Grub2.
    rename it from NeoSmart Linux to whatever the linux name is.
    now click Add Entry .. done
    reboot and see the bootmenu for windows with linux also.

    why do u keep thinking u have to use hirens cd for anything ??

    u want Windows and linux on same hdd with a menu right ?? well here is the answer ^

    and please watch your words carefully i dont talk crap about your description and wrong ideas and cover it up with "non english speaker" excuse.
    i myself didnt speak english when i was born untill 13 yrs old.

    I am sorry. I didn't mean to insult you at all. I just said my experience: I can read edited English newspapers, books without problem, but maybe I have problem with [insert your accepted word here for non-standard] English.

    I read your words again: truly, not quite clear for me.

    Thanks.
