I'm setting up a deployment system for our devices to set them up before we ship to customers.
I have three partitions, first is OS partition, second is Vistas recovery WinRE, third is a linux partition with a hardware test on it. It boots from the OS partition as standard and when you press f8 during boot up it boots WinRE partition.
I would now like to add so that it boots the linux partition by pressing f10 or similar. I can add it as a dual-boot option with bcdedit.exe but I've not succeeded in getting Windows boot manager to boot this partition if f10 is pressed.
When reading a white paper on setting up Vista recovery WinRE, there is a mention of this Custom Launch Mechanism with F10 but they don't explain how to set it up and I've not managed to find anything about that.
So how do you setup f10 to boot a specific boot option in Windows boot manager. /Ola
