Re: Windows7 and F12 dual boot problems - can't access Windows

Glad u got it working.
"That gag looks interesting but the link shows a .zip file so I'm a little fuzzy ( I suspect ur seeing a pattern here) is that a win prog or can it be run in linux?"

You unzip the file and burn the 'cdrom.iso' file to disc using brasero, k3b etc. Then reboot and hit f12 (if u motherboard supports this option) to boot from the cd/dvd drive. You don't have to install gag to try it. Follow the prompts.

I'm having a similar problem, grub identifies Windows 7 but it won't load, it just reloads the grub menu when you attempt to boot into Win7.

I had some problems with GAG boot loader just recently. It seems to be buggy. I'm using BootIt™ Next Generation now as it seems stable. Anybody else used it before?

Hello LHLTVD,

Probably the most useful thing you can do when you request help for a problem like that is to boot into Fedora, open a terminal, run the following commands, and return here to paste the results into your next post...
Code:
su
fdisk -l
cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
GRUB is known to be capable of booting Windows 7 as this thread already has proved again. But sometimes tweaks to the grub.conf file are needed to make GRUB boot Windows as this thread also already has proved again.
