Yet another GRUB problem..

Whenever I try to boot win, I get a "unknown file system" error in GRUB;
"Unknown file system, partition 0x7"
after setting the root(hd1,0).
NOTE: I use 2 hdds; one temp @ pata (which comes before my regular sata).

Is there any way to fix that problem without erasing the entire hdd?

You may have a typo, there is a gap between the t and the ( in the root command.

If you made a type in the question, but no typo in the menu, then grub is looking at a unrecongisable partition.

as you can not boot into windows reboot into linux and open a terminal and type su then the root password
then the command grub and then issue various root commands trying to find your options.

read my trouble shooter if that helps
