Glad you're happy. Didn't really expect that, thought you're insistent 
on using EasyBCD to boot everything because that's normal for most 
windows users starting up on linux and afraid to cut loose windows, not 
because linux is not suitable but is 'too rocket science'. It's not.

You may keep checking on EasyBCD if they have newer versions that handle 
grub2 though, just to update yourself.

Welcome to the club.
