Hi,

 

I had Windows 7 installed on my PC and later on I have installed Oracle Linux6 (Server).

While installation I didn't get any option to configure dual boot and now I am unable to boot Windows7.

 

If I do fsdik -l command on Linux prompt, I get the result:

# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 1600041885696 bytes

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders

Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

I/O size (minimum.optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Disk identifier: 0x9143f05b

 

Device           Boot     Start     End     Blocks          Id     System

/dev/sda1       *          1          1305    10482381     83     Linux

/dev/sda2                  1306     6405    40960000      7       HPFS/NTFS

/dev/sda3                  6405     12779  51200000      7       HPFS/NTFS

/dev/sda4                  12779    19458 53646336      7       HPFS/NTFS

 

I check the grub config file at /boot/grub/menu.lst but I do not see any entry for windows here.

 

Please advise how to configure grub or other way to make the dual boot options enable and use windows and linux.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Anand
