not able to boot into Win7, dual boot with Fedora, getting error BOOTMGR missing..
 
Can any one please help me in this problem that, I have installed Fedora 14 on my system configured to dual boot with my Windows7 OS. But at the Grub loader screen, on selecting the other (Windows7) link it is showing the error

BOOTMGR missing
Ctrl+Alt+Del to Restart

I had run the boot_info_script055.sh

First, are you able to boot Fedora on the hard drive??
In your bootinfo script, it shows NO boot files on sda1. Your grub.conf entry for windows 7 points to sda1. That won't work!
You have three windows 7 partitions which would be standard for pre-installed windows 7. The first partition is usually a small (100MB) boot partition, the second is the system files and the third is a Recovery partition.
Is this a preinstalled windows 7.

I would change the current windows entry to either (hd0,1) or (hd0,2). Try each in turn.

The bootinfo script shows the following files on sda2:
Boot files/dirs: /bootmgr /Boot/BCD

and the following windows boot files on sda3:

Quote:

Boot files/dirs: /Windows/System32/winload.exe
I'm not sure if that is right. I don't know enough about windows anymore. I would suggest the following modification to the grub.conf file:

Quote:

title Windows 7
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1
If that doesn't work, change the (hd0,1) to (hd0,2).

I'm not sure what happened with sda4?? It shows an unknown bootloader on your Extended partition which is pretty weird!

mrprassad 05-08-2011 09:54 PM

it works, thank you.
 
Thank you very much.. it works on changing (hd0,0) to (hd0,1)

But how it happened ? What these (hd0,0), (hd0,1), (hd0,2) parameters mean ?

Yes. now I am able to boot in both fedora and Win7..

but in Fedora I tried to install broadcam wireless driver, but not able to make my wireless function enable.. Please help me out, as I have to use wireless more frequently in my campus.

What these (hd0,0), (hd0,1), (hd0,2) parameters mean ?
They refer to hard drives and partitions. The hd0 is the first hard drive. The one at the end (hd0,1) is the second partition. In Grub Legacy which Fedora uses, hard drives and partitions are counted beginning with zero.

With regard to your wireless problem, I would suggest starting a new thread in Networking or Fedora.
