    I have three OS on my system (Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.4 & Mac OS X retail), I installed Ubuntu 10.4 and Mac on my second hard drive after removing my windows 7 drive first. I can boot to windows 7 automatically and if I want to get to grub to select my Ubuntu or Mac installation, I have to select my second drive at boot up with F12

    I installed easyBCD and tried adding Linux-grub2 to the boot menu but when I reboot and select the Linux entry I only get “grub >”

    Is there a way to fix this besides installing grub to the windows MBR?
    Thanks

    Hmm, can you try

    1) Delete the Linux entry in EasyBCD
    2) Replace C:\Program Files\NeoSmart Technologies\EasyBCD\profiles\grldr with the one attached to this post
    3) Add a new GRUB2 entry with EasyBCD and reboot to test?

    Thanks for your reply. No that didn’t work.

    I also tried NeoGrub and added the following script to the menu.lst ( Grub is located in /dev/sdb4), and it didn’t work:

    default 0
    timeout 1
    title Chainload into GRUB v2
    root (hd1,4)
    kernel /boot/grub/core.img

    Grub sees the windows 7 disk but it won’t boot it
