Default Smart Boot Manager 3.7.1 - Screenshots, Video, Download

Smart Boot Manager (SBM) is an OS independent and full-featured boot manager with an easy-to-use user interface

  • Automatically searches drivers and partitions
    Smart BootManager can automatically search and locate all the floppy, hard and CD-ROM drives as well as partitions. It can distinguish whether a partition is bootable or non-bootable, and only incorporates bootable partitions into the Boot Menu.
  • Powerful Boot Schedule
    You can assign a time schedule for each Boot Record (a partition or a driver). Smart BootManager will boot them automatically at the time specified. For example, you can schedule your computer to boot Windows 98 at the time when you start work during the week and boot Linux at midnight or during the weekend.
  • Booting from CD-ROM
    Smart BootManager supports booting from almost all kinds of IDE ATAPI CD-ROMs, including PCMCIA CD-ROMs. You can let the BIOS boot from C: only and assign a password for it, then you can boot from CD-ROM with Smart BootManager. If you have a laptop with a special PCMCIA CD-ROM which has no support for booting in the BIOS, Smart BootManager can help you boot from it.
  • Swapping driver ID
    Smart BootManager can boot most operating systems from not only the first hard disk but also others. If you have more than one hard disk in a computer and run different operating systems on each, this feature is very useful.
  • Auto Delay Boot
    Smart BootManager can boot the default boot record automatically if no keys are pressed within a specfied delay time. By combining this feature and the Boot Schedule feature, you can let your computer boot different operating systems automatically according to the schedule table.
  • Sending keystrokes to the operating system
    Smart BootManager can preload some keystrokes into the key buffer before booting an operating system to control its booting process. For example, you can send Shift-F5 to Windows 98 to let it go into the real DOS mode.
  • Easy Customized Theme file
    The theme file includes all screen elements, such as window colors, messages, background, font etc. It does not contain any program code, so you can change Smart BootManager's Look and Feel without recompiling it. Just choose your favorite theme and install it. Smart BootManager now has six themes with different languages, including English, Chinese, Czech, German, Hungarian and Russian. More themes with other languages will be out soon. If there is no theme for your native language, you can create one yourself. Read the documentation for details.
  • Password protection
    You can assign a password for each partition or drive, and also set a password for administrator. There are three security levels in SBM.
  • Y2k bug work-around for old BIOSes
    You can set current year in SBM to bypass the buggy old BIOSes' Y2k problem.
