Some boot.ini switches - Visual BCD equivalents

 

Every BCD object (application/loader object, settings object, device options object) has zero or more elements.

 

Elements are divided in groups:

Library elements - elements which can belong to any object.

OSLoader elements - elements specific to loader objects.

 

Every element has a type like boolean, integer, string. encoded in the symbolic name of the element.

Visual BCD displays only the specific name (the part after the underscore) of an element.
