Dual Boot Windows 2008 R2 Server and Suse Linux 11 SP1


I need to dual boot windows 2008 R2 and Suse Linux 11 SP1.

I have ASUS P9X79 with 2TH HD which is gpt/basic with gParted. Windows installs and boots are fine but iused EasyBCD 2.2 for Linux which is on sda8. After copying /root/grub/menu.lst entries into NeoGrub BootLoader, the windows boot manager shows error below:

File: \NST\NeoGrub.mbr
Status: 0xc0000098
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

Any suggestions/tricks to get Linux booted welcome.

On an EFI-boot system, you cannot chainload GRUB from BOOTMGR due to MS restrictions.
You will need to install GRUB2 as the main bootloader and chainload BOOTMGR from it, or disable EFI boot.
