The Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store contains boot configuration parameters 
and controls how the operating system is started in Microsoft® Windows Vista? 
and Microsoft® Windows Server? Code Name "Longhorn" operating systems. These 
parameters were previously in the Boot.ini file (in BIOS-based operating 
systems) or in the nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) entries (in Extensible Firmware 
Interface?based operating systems). You can use the Bcdedit.exe command-line 
tool to affect the Windows® code which runs in the pre-operating system 
environment by adding, deleting, editing, and appending entries in the BCD 
store. Bcdedit.exe is located in the \Windows\System32 directory of the Windows 
Vista partition.
  VistaBootPRO can be used to make "cosmetic" changes to the Windows Vista boot 
Menu such as changing the name of the Operating Systems shown in the boot menu 
and make advanced "functional" changes like adding an Operating System to the 
boot menu and repairing the Windows Vista boot configuration data. Advanced 
settings include backing up and exporting your boot loader configuration and 
modifying various details for the entries.
