#2 fixed Installing airboot while installing eCS2.1 prevents an existing eCS2.0GA from booting Ben Rietbroek losepete

When installing eCS2.1 I elected to give airboot a try as the boot manager.

While airboot could boot the new eCS2.1 installation it could not boot my existing eCS2.0GA installation. Selecting eCS2.0 from the boot menu results in the system starting to boot and stopping immediately.

Removing airboot and reinstalling Boot Manager means that both eCS installations boot fine.

Reinstalling airboot means that the ecS2.0GA installation will not boot.

This is repeatable and indicates a problem with airboot.

#1 fixed Licensing concerns Ben Rietbroek Lewisr

README.TXT states that the application is distributed under GPLv3. However, the (earlier) DISCLAIM.TXT includes the following:

This software may not be used in any way by US government. This means it may not be used on any US government/military computers in any case. It also means that if you are working for US government in any way, then you are not allowed to use it as well.

Setting aside for a moment the closing remarks in that file, I'm wondering whether this file is still relevant, and should be removed.

As an aside, I have always been bothered by the content of DISCLAIM.TXT, and this has kept me from ever using the software. Now that eCS 2.1 relies upon this is an official replacement for BM, my choices for my own installations are limited.

If the restrictions in this file still apply, then I do not believe that the applicdation is in compliance with GPLv3. However, if these restrictions are to apply, then a modified GPL should be used (and I will find another application).

GPLv3 should also be included in the package.

#3 fixed NTLDR is missing Ben Rietbroek Axel Wein

I installed eCS 2.1 on a harddisk with a partition for IBM Bootmanager and with Win XP (on C:). With the IBM Bootmanager I could boot Windows without problems. But if I install Air-Boot 1.07 there's the error message "NTLDR is missing". So I installed Air-Boot 1.06, and I can boot Win XP without problems. But Air-Boot 1.06 only can handle 30 partitions and that's not enough for me.
