Solved Linux & Windows 7 Boot Problem

Specs: Linux x86_64
I recently installed Linux OS to my PC, along side Win7, as a dual boot. When the boot screen comes up I CANNOT arrow to Win7 to log in there. Anyone have an idea of a way around this?

✔ Best Answer
Can you see the choice on a menu? Are you on a laptop? When you see the menu try a crtl-alt-del to see if keyboard reacts or just a tab or space bar.

This is why I hate dual boots.

I'm on a desktop.
I have tried CTRL+ALT+DEL
Yeah, beginning to hate it as well. I even installed it on a different HDD, slave drive, tried to unplug it and boot, but wouldn't load. Think I am s c r e w e d... =(

Can we assume that ctrl-alt-del did reboot the system?

Can I assume that the live cd or media you used seemed to work correctly during the install?

The other installs would have never fixed this issue.

Is it a usb keyboard?

Consider a virtual machine instead.
