Hello,

booting from the logical partitions with this configuration will not work with the Plop Boot Manager 5. It should work with PBM6.

Best regards

Ok, thx.

Ok, vielen Dank für die Antwort. Schade....
Die Frage ist auch, ob es mit Windows Boot Manager BCD machbar ist?

Meinst du ob man beim Windows Boot Manager die anderen Windows Installationen angeben kann?

Nicht ganz. Ich habe mit EasyBCD entsprechende Einträge hinzugefügt. Also 1 Eintrag pro Partition. 
Das Problem ist, dass die Primär-Partitionen 1-3 und Logische Partition 4 einwandrei funzen. ABER!! Wenn ich versuche von Partitionen 5 bis 10 zu booten - wird einfach von der Partition 4 geladen.... Das macht echt fertig....
