Cannot boot Windows Vista after install.

Postby djwright745 » Sat Apr 04, 2009 4:08 pm

First, I installed Linux Mint 6 on my second partition. Then I installed Windows XP Pro with SP3 on the first partition. Then I installed Vista Home Edition over that, being unhappy with XP Pro. Afterwards, I could not boot Linux Mint because (I think) the boot loader had been deleted. I thought that a Fresh install of Linux Mint 6 on the second partition would restore my boot loader. It did, however, when I boot windows, it brings me back into grub at the same menu that I had just chosen to boot windows from. Does anyone have any idea what may have caused this?

Also, it might be important that I tried to:

Code: Select all

sudo grub
> root (hd0,0)
> setup (hd0)
> exit


as someone had advised, but recieved some error message after:

Code: Select all

setup (hd0)


Return to “Installation & Boot”
