From LinuxJournal:
grub> rootnoverify (hd0,1)
grub> makeactive
grub> chainloader +1
grub> boot
When you get into Windows you can open up a terminal and do /fixmbr and you won't have any linux problems anymore.

The challenge, by the way, was actually helping you and not necessarily the question you were asking. I opened Google and typed "grub windows boot" and clicked the first result it spat to me. Clearly this is something you could have done yourself. Nobody answered your post because you assumed that everyone was at the newbie level and big bad grub had us all stumped... all in a matter of 8 minutes. Your first post was understandably newbie but the next 2 that "let us know" what an incredible challege this is to us is borderline insulting.

Your newbie-ness is understandable and we've all had the frustration but you get a lot farther with giving a good try at searching for your problem before posting. Just some advice...

manishredhat - I have merged your 3 posts into 1. Don't bump your threads in this way - the system autobumps threads during a 24 hour period. Equally, we are all volunteers here and no one thread is more important than anyone else's (with the exception of mine of course )
