Dual Boot win7 and sabayon5.1 Fails, Need help Please


I have win 7 installed on one drive and just installed sabayon 5.1 on a secondary drive
booted back to win 7, installed easyBCD 2, added the linux neosmart on first partiton of my linux drive ( where grub was installed). rebooted slected the neosmart linux option
and Nothing, returned to win7, changed settings in ever concievable combination, tried each partiton of my linux drive, with and without the grub isnt installed option, tried using neo grub and using my menu.lst from my grub, which i had copied over, and still no good.
