Ok -- looked for solutions to that and seems like Boot-Repair should
fix it. Like I said before, I suspect problem you had before with it was because you had mixed-mode install. Now that you have both installed in same mode, think it should work this time.BEFORE doing that, here is what I'm assuming:
* You installed Win 7 and were able to boot successfully into it afterwards.
* Windows boot problem only occurred after you installed Mint.
you needed to shrink down any Windows partitions after installing it to make room for Mint -- you first rebooted into Windows to let it make any adjustments to the new size. If you didn't reboot to Windows after shrinking one of its partitions, that may be the cause of the problem and may require use of a Win recovery disk.
* If you didn't need to shrink Windows partitions, then ignore last point.If something wrong with my assumptions
, report back with details of how situation is different before proceding with Boot-Repair.To Fix:
* Boot computer with live Mint USB/DVD
* Follow steps here to install Boot-Repair to live environment and run the "recommended repair": https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
. (Save the pastebin url it gives you when it ends. If process didn't work we can look at the results for clues.)
* If you want to test out option 2 below, go ahead and do that.Another Option for Fix:
* Read info here on tool called rEFInd
* Use link for "Getting rEFInd" on left side of page.
* Follow instructions for making a bootable CD with rEFInd to test it out first.
* If it works follow instructions for installing to system.
