Why use BootMagic?

By Norehca ·
Dose anyone suggest the use of BootMagic? Im currently running 3 OS's: Windows XP, Windows x64, and Windows Vista. Is there any point to using BootMagic? Or is BootMagic only meant for special situations? Just prefference? If so, would you suggest the use of it?

For a system that multi-boots different versions of Windows, there is not a lot of value to a boot manager utility.

So long as you install the different versions of Windows in the order they were released, the Windows boot loader should take care of things.

The only tricky thing with the Windows boot loader is setting the default OS.

The main value of a boot manager is when you are running different styles of operating systems. Such as a system that dual boots Linux and Windows. Or a true DOS OS and Windows.
