I' got a problem with dual booting. I can boot Windows7(64bit) on the Windows bootloader/easyBCD, but can't boot linux with it.
When I use booting on CD: Super Grub disk 2 , I'm finding grub2 and I can boot linux with no problems.
Windows 7 was perinstaled by the seller, then I Installed linux.
In SG I can see partition table.
hd0,1 ntfs boot
hd0,2 ntfs Recovery
hd0,5 ntfs Windows Data
hd0,6 ext mint linux
hd0,7 ext linux home
hd0,8 swap
hd0,9 ntfs Windows System

I used add grub2 option (automatic configuration) and then neogrub but with no result: Windows on bootloader (booting linux fails), linux only from CD boot.
Capacity of disk is 1,5 T.


In SGD2 in option detect any OS, I recive an option for linux:
linux 2.6.32-21-generic

in this option chooseing edit we'll see:
set root=hd0,6
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-generic root=UUID=9b7fa53d-79b9-4927-b73c-b896697e41c4 ro
initrid /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-21-generic

So using this option from CD SGD2 will boot linuxMint9
