So it isn't a linux problem at all - it's a windows problem now!

Try searching here

Some kind soul sent me a link for such a cd on vistax64.com forums. I have it still (64 bit). There's different ones for 32 bit, and 32 bit xp.

Examine very carefully the Grub documentation on properly booting Windows.

Also: personally, I use virtual machines to run all guest operating systems. The native OS, untouched, runs the host, while all guests of any type run in VMs. Intel hardware provides native support for running virtual machines. Very reliable VM software exists for every type of host-OS.
