BootIt Bare Metal helps manage your partitions, install and boot multiple operating systems with ease, back up and restore partitions or entire drives.
This program has been developed to provide you with a capable set of partitioning tools that are easy to use and altogether in one convenient spot. It comes with a Boot Manager that allows you to boot any partition on any hard drive (up to 16), including logical volumes, and also booting multiple operating systems from a single partition.
BootIt Bare Metal supports hiding/unhiding partitions, swapping of drives, and partition table order for each boot item. It will automatically detect existing operating systems upon installation and add them to the boot menu. You can use the Direct Boot Menu to boot directly to any partition, bypassing the standard boot menu. It also provides options enabling you to customize and secure the computer with user IDs and passwords and support for booting to Linux, MS-DOS, OS/2, and more...
