I really can't help much after the fact, but if you have multiple drives, you should have installed each OS on a separate drive, doing away with Grub altogether. You would then use either the BIOS's Boot Priority or the F8 BBS Popup to select the HD to boot from.

I'm not much good with Linux in general, and especially not with Fedora, I have never gotten it to behave on my machine.

Why would you install Linux and 7? Contact the fedora forums:

Something broke somewhere.

i installed vista & fedora on my laptop (hp dv5).
And vista's hibernate worked properly.
So I think this problem is from 7...

sorry, my english isn't good.

Hi LangKhach,

I've got the same problem with Windows 7 x64 together with Ubuntu, using Grub as bootloader. Did you find a solution in the meanwhile?

One simple solution would be to make the Windows Boot loader the primary loader, and then add GRUB to the windows loader using EasyBCD.

What problems are you having with hibernate?

The reason that I ask is that I run my laptop with Windows 7 on my C drive and Ubuntu 9.10 using freespace on the single hard drive. My bootloader is Grub 2 (default with Ubuntu 9.10) and Hibernation for Windows 7 works just fine for me.

Negative, Ghostrider.

If Fedora is like Ubuntu, then GRUB installs automatically when the Linux distro sees that another OS already exists (even if it's on another disk). I'm sure this is considered a useful "feature" (configuring GRUB can be quite difficult).

OP - are you using a partitioned HDD, or have you indeed installed each OS on it's own disk?
