Well, that's good to know. I may try it out, once I get a new PC.

Just as what MC described, I've used EasyBCD quite a number of times to restore the Windows boot without an issue. For that purpose, I think what it does is to just write the MBR so that it points back to the Windows partition. To me it's more user friendly than any other choices.

That said, for backup purpose, I keep my documents in a thumb drive, a portable harddisk and some working files on the cloud, and an encrypted file to keep passwords with 'layered' protection where necessary.

Or Install install Rescatux which also includes SuperGrub2. You can use Unetbootin to install it onto your USB drive.

That's a good suggestion, but again, the USB drives are costly too, and I can't afford one presently. Maybe later. I had bought an 8 GB one, but it is engaged in backing up my software collection.
