Trying to run a dual boot system with Linux Mint 14 and Windows 7 HP.
The machine has two hard drives with both OS's on separate drives. The windows installation was installed first with the second hard drive disconnected. When this was completed the Windows drive was disconnected and the other was connected and I installed Mint.
The first drive was then re-connected and the BIOS adjusted to boot from the Windows drive. I then installed Easy BCD on the Windows installation and created a second entry in the boot list using the setting Grub 2 (automatically selected)
Now when I boot I get a two item boot menu which lists the two installations. When I select item 1 (Windows) the OS boots fine. When I select item 2 (Linux) I get the following command line style message.
GRUB4DOS 0.4.5b 2011-11-27, MEM: 636k/2045/0m,END:35560D
[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename.]
If I disconnect the Windows drive the machine will boot into Mint fine.
Please help me to resolve this issue.
