    Help me find this damn component

    Alright, awhile back I had watched a YouTube video where this guy built a custom PC inside of an old Xbox Debug case, and he used a component that brought up a GUI when the OC started of a boot menu to select between Windows, OSX, or Linux. I don't want to run a virtual server, I do t want the standard menu when you simply partition your hard drive, I don't want boot camp or any of that shot, I want to know what this component is.

    If you don't know or are just trying to +1 your posts I will report you. I am pissed off from trying to find this fucking thing.

    @Dave84311 @allen Maybe you guys know what this is.

    Edit; PC not OC, fucking iPod.

    It was the EfiX thanks. And he built a PC using the Xbox Debug console as a case (the slightly larger and clear Xbox, not the 360). He was sponsored by Newegg but I couldn't find the video.

    edit dont know what all you are trying to achieve but this may be a free alternative Installing XP After Vista or 7 - EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

    umbunto boot menu is the best for multiboot

    I'm basically trying to boot Windows 7 an OSX (hackintosh). I'm using the build mostly for music. I'm definitely looking at Grub 2 as my bootloader but if I can find anything better (graphically I'm all for it).

    this is one video on it there are lots i htink there are some custom windows ones two if the machine you are building is intel i dont see why you would not just vm >? i have a dual boot but that is a just in case my os fucks up

    this is what i use // i have had osx/ 7 x 32 times 1 and win 7 x64 times 2 and umbuntu as a multi boot before umbunto is the tricky one if ever you go to remove it research this trust me "install linux in with win7 on a secondary partion to be safe "
    do not install it on the main part !!! and stay clear of windows 8 it will fuck up youur boot loader for sure "it is garbage "
    hackintosh can be a pain to get all worked out drivers will be an issue on some things !!! best of luck update the status of this very cool project please!!!
