Re: Linux mint unable to mount my external hard drive

I have 2 different partitions the one windows recovery and another for windows 7. Both partitions get me to the same menu which just the recovery partition should point me to. Does this mean that the windows 7 option grub menu is pointing to the wrong partition? If so. How do i fix it?
