Help!!
I am really at the end of my patience :-(
I want to dual boot fedora12 on my already win7 installed system.
I followed the steps given in the link below.(Kindly have a look on the link).
http://www.thpc.info/dual/win7/dual...
It does NOT work!
basic problem is i install fedora, win7 says grubmgr missing.
=> I try to boot from win7 DVD->repair computer->command prompt->bootrec /fixmbr->restart.
Now Fedora is gone and windows starts normally.
=>Now i would put fedora DVD in->reboot->rescue installed system->#chroot /mnt/sysimage->cd /boot/grub->grub-install /dev/sda->sync;sync;exit;exit->reboot
and now again Win7 is gone(says grub mgr missing when clicked on other) and fedora starts normally.
AND THE WHOLE STORY STARTS AGAIN.
Will my plight ever come to an end?

You have to either edit bcd to add in fedora or edit grub config to add in windows 7.

Consider live usb and virtual machines in the future. It may be easer.

Odd that the fedora install didn't correctly configure grub to have windows 7 bootable also.
