I need some help, I recently installed a second drive in my AMD box and installed Solaris 10...Installation was a breeze, however, my grub boot loader doesn't work for windows drive.
When I restart the computer, I get both windows and Solaris in grub but selecting windows and clicking return reloads grub. In other words, if select Solaris and click on enter, it boots the Solaris install but if I select windows and click on enter, the screen flashes momentarily and reloads grub (almost like a loop).
Can someone please help me figure out what's going on here?
I looked at the file and understand what's going on here, it has an entry for windows...I suspect that windows mbr might be currupt, I will reinstall the mbr and hope I can get back into windows. Thanks

Here is what I have:

Hmm...I just did a little research and my finding is that if I reinstall the mbr for windows, it will get rid grub and solaris partition...is there any truth to this? I should also mention that I have a dual disk boot (two separate drives). If that matters.
