Description

** New EFI Support - The current version of Grub2Win supports both EFI and BIOS on Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista systems **

Users who wish to run the older version of Grub2Win should click the "Files" tab at SourceForge and download "grub2win.legacy.zip". The legacy version supports XP, but will not run on EFI systems.

Safely dual boot Windows and Linux.

Grub2Win boots native, open source GNU grub version 2.02 code. Everything is contained in one 12 MB directory on your Windows C: drive. On EFI systems a few small modules (less than 1/2 MB total) will be installed to your EFI partition.

Using the simple Windows GUI and instructions you can install Grub2Win quickly and safely. Boot time messages and help can be displayed in your native language.
Select from a nearly unlimited number of OS choices. Samples for Android, Ubuntu, Suse, Fedora, Mint, BSD and Windows are included.

Grub2Win has been downloaded more than 100,000 times and is used in 170 countries worldwide.

    While unzipping grub2win.zip I get a message from avira "TR/Graftor.142644.68" was found in grub2win.exe. Is that true? What to do? ?? hwsn EDIT: Just testing another download from www.com-magazin.de: the size of the zipped file is now only 4.347kB and it is clean!!!! ***** The first from sourcefourge.net was 4.652kB an hosted the trojan above!! Can we trust on clean files at sourceforge??????

    I'd like to say that it's a great piece of software but, sadly, can't as it absolutely refused to install on my 256GB SSD C: drive. All I could get out of it was a number of error message boxes saying that various files/directories could not be created. My system is Windows 7 Home Premium, at latest fix level.
