May be it the EFI BIOS that I don´t know yet.
I should have done more research about the new X230.

As to EasyBCD - I may be unfair here. I shouldn´t have combined shell editing AND EasyBCD.

Does EasyBCD have EFI support?

No, not yet.

Well, this all needs more research.
I do have Gentoo in Virtualbox now on my X230, installing Gnome
at the moment ( which I already regret: so many blocks, so many hurdles
before I can start Gnome3 ).
I cannot give Gentoo the whole resources in Virtualbox that the X230 offers which is really
fun btw, but at least I have Gentoo.
Until I have brought my knowledge up to date ( I am getting old, I must say :roll: )
it should suffice.
Later I might change the hdd for a solid state drive, install Gentoo first, Win7 second
and reinstall grub afterwards which I prefer to installing Gentoo somewhere on the
drive where it fits beside Win7.
There is no grub-efi but a gnu-efi in portage. As the X230 BIOS seems to use EFI Bios only
it looks like I´ll have to deal with it anyway.

But at least I have learned a great deal here. :)

Thanks a lot BillWho, Kimmie and Fitzcarraldo
