There are two things you can try:
1. Try using Supuer Grub Disk
to reinstall Grub, and in the process it may detect Windows.
2. Add the entry mainually. This is my entry:
Code: Select all
# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for a non-linux OS
# on /dev/sda1
title Windows XP & Windows 7
Using the wiki guide
, you can find out what XP is installed on so you can direct grub to the right pat of the hard drive. The chainloader bit is because XP keeps its own bootloader, and grub merely passes control over to it when you select windows.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.
