    Hi,

    I noticed something annoying using the windows 8 uefi bootloader for tripple boot

    windows 8
    windows 7
    windows vista

    and I still have no solid solution for this issue. The boot process fails very sudden giving an error

    0x0000001E

    when I use

    \EFI\Boot\bootx64.efi
    \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi

    I made some tests and found out how to boot windows vista, but that's a workaround I don't prefer:
    I copied bootmgfw.efi from the vista sp1 installation disc to

    \EFI\Vista\bootx64.efi

    and added the entry like

    bcfg boot add 05 \EFI\Vista\bootx64.efi "Windows Vista UEFI"

    Ok, now it boots up flawlessly but that's a dirty workaround.
    Does anyone know, did microsoft remove the support for vista for uefi boot in windows 8?

    best regards

    Good job you replied so quickly, can't imagine being stuck with this problem for almost 2 years
