Edit the Grub Menu to add Windows entries.

How to edit the Boot menu to add Windows

Sometimes, post install, the option to boot windows is missing from the Grub boot menu. To add an entry we will typically need two bits of information first.

[ol]
[li]The result of fdisk -l from a su - terminal. See Eg: YouTube - su - fdisk.mpeg[/li][li]The result of this from a su - terminal: cat /boot/grub/menu.lst[/li][/ol]
The purpose of this guide is just to tell you how to edit the file menu.lst, located at /boot/grub/menu.lst
This file provides the options you see in the Grub menu when you boot your computer.

Ideally then, you start a thread posting the above two pieces of information and use the instruction here to edit the menu file.

KDE Users:
Open a normal user terminal and paste this code in with your mouse:

kdesu kwrite /boot/grub/menu.lst

enter password when requested and you can now edit the file and save when done

Gnome Users:
Open a normal user terminal and paste this code in with your mouse:

gnomesu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

enter password when requested and you can now edit the file and save when done.
