I currently have windows 7 on 1 drive and ubuntu 11.04 on another. Windows7 drive has the windows boot loader, while the ubuntu drive has GRUB2.

I am able to switch the priority for my hard drives to boot into GRUB, but I can't seem to be able to get the win bootloader to load up Ubuntu.

I've tried:

Since my linux drive doesn't have a drive letter, how does easybcd know where it is?

The default setting for GRUB2 in Easy BCD does not work, I've also set it to Grub 1, drive letter to boot, and GRUB 1 to the boot partition of linux in easy bcd. none of things work.

You need to follow the instructions at Ubuntu - EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

EasyBCD searches for the grub configuration file on all partitions. If Ubuntu is installed according to the above instructions, EasyBCD will be able to load its configuration menu and get you into it.
