Dual boot w 7 64 and ubuntu 10.04 64

I wasn't sure whether I should make a thread or reply to one, so here goes.

I installed windows 7 64 first on my raid 0 setup . Then I installed windows xp3 on a partiton, and with easybcd in w7 added an entry. Worked fine for a month. so I formatted the xp partition and installed the latest Ubuntu 64. Upon the advanced menu in step 8 I installed the boot loader to my Linux partition, not over the w7 loader. I then booted into w 7 and added a grub entry. I reboot and get the win load screen. I click on the neosmart option and nothing happens, just a black screen. p.s I forgot to mention I'm using the latest bcd beta 53.

Hello Ocular, welcome to the forums,

The new threads fine. It helps us separate your issue from someone elses, so thanks :smile:

Now, 53 is NOT the latest build. Its quite old now. You need to get the latest (now a RC) from [thread=642]here[/thread]. Ubuntu's using grub2 in 10.04. You'll need to add a grub2 entry instead.
