    Very easy to use and very reliable. (1) You can test the setup before you write it to the hard disk. (2) Whenever you add an OS you will see a screen with the partitions corresponding to the first disk. If you have more than one disk just press 2 or 3 and you will see the partitions of disk 2 or 3 etc. (3) whenever you are happy with the installation save it to HD (4). I use it with in my laptop where I have win7 64b and opensuse 13.1 64b. Also in my desktop with opensuse 13.2 and opensuse 13.1 both 64b.

    Worked like a charm. I usually use Boot Magic on my legacy PC computers but was having some problems with it on my Dell Dimension 4600 dual boot Win98SE and XP. So I got GAG and it was very easy to install and then tested/tried it out using the floppy disk install. Worked great first time out and then saved to hard drive MBR. Simple to use and looks good and the documentation was excellent. Highly Recommended!.

    I have used this product on 15 laptops for 3 years continuously without one single issue. It works, every time. You can't ask for more than that.

    With DOS, XP and three Linux OS partitions, I originally used the NTLDR/boot.ini and Bootpart root to do the multibooting setups. Worked fine, but was a bit overly technical, for what was needed. When I switched from XP to Win7, I tried the freeware (proprietary, not GPL) version of OSL2000. Worked fine, except for a "Pause Nag Screen" in the boot sequence that slowly, day by day, increased the time that you had to wait before "OK" showed up and you could start to boot your chosen OS. I reached my pain threshhold at 20 seconds, each boot. OSL2000's developer has no forum, does not seem to respond to e-mail queries from prospective buyers and, according to posts on the web, from people who have already paid nearly $30 to buy the product to get rid of the Nag/Delay screen. You need a floppy to save uninstall info, it's hard-coded into the routines. There's no info on the site whether you have to spring for another $30 each time a new release comes out, or whether the licence is perpetual. Many posts on the web indicate having to pay again each time a new release comes out. That said, OSL2000 IS slick, and does setup each boot time, "automagically". GAG is free/GPL, and works fine. There's a forum. Since it's GPL, you can tinker with the source code (if inclined/capable) to meet your needs. Yes, it requires a bit more input (than OSL2000) when installing and doing the OS setups, but that's nearly a no-brainer too. The only thing I hate is, regardless of whether you have said "don't hide partitions", it will alway hide a/all lower primary partitions than the partition you are booting from. The developer should fix this PRONTO, giving the user the option to hide this way, or to hide nothing. GAG will install right over OSL2000 in the first track (sectors 1-63) quite nicely, thank you, and you will be multibooting again after the short setup of which OS's you want to boot. Conversely, if you had OSL2000 and were driven nuts by the Nagware delay, and installed GAG over top of it, by then installing OSL2000 again over top of GAG (it's done automatically) afterwards, you are back at "no delay" on the Nag/delay" front, and can wait until the delay becomes bothersome before repeating the "Replace with GAG, then reinstall OSL2000 again" routine. Your mileage may vary.

    The most stable and easy to install boot manager I have ever used!
