Vista, Windows7, OpenSuse

C: is Vista
D: is Windows7
Linux on HDA6 ext3

I am using grub bootloader…

When I select opensuse its fine and when I select Windows its fine (goes to vista)

Windows7 beta is on D drive, how can I make that bootup in grub? or is there a way of doing it in Windows MBR so that when I select Windows under grub, it will then go to another list to choose from.

Thanks for any help or advice!

I’m not sure about Windows 7, but since it’s still Windows :wink: and boots from “D” you might need to add:

map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)

before the chainloader in menu.lst

yast -> system -> bootloader

Remapping the BIOS driver numbers helped me, when I had Vista on a seperate disk.

Windows 7 should be effectively like XP or Vista for GRUB purposes.

You need to make sure that the partition number is set right.

title Vista
rootnoverify (hd1,1)
chainloader (hd1,1)+1

title Windows 7
rootnoverify (hd1,2)
chainloader (hd1,2)+1

Might be correct if there is a recovery partition, then Vista, followed by Windows 7.

You can show the forum the partition layout of the Windows disk, by using the command :

fdisk -l

If it’s not clear to you what the right partiton numbers are.

There’s a thread I started a while back, to post the additional info, I’d found necessary in a 2 disk configuration additional-info-sticky-vista-multiboot.html
