Ubuntu installed inside windows 7 missing boot entry after 7 repair

Hi,

Previously I have installed Windows XP then Windows 7 in different drives of my computer. Later installed Ubuntu 10.10 inside Windows 7 and upgraded it to 11.04. After that Accidentally I have formatted Windows XP drive from Ubuntu. I installed XP again to the same drive. I tried to repair Windows 7 and it worked fine, but the problem is I can boot only Windows 7. I have used BCDEdit tool to add entry to boot menu. This also worked fine that I am able to boot both Windows 7 & Windows XP.

Now I want to boot Ubuntu 11.04 also using already installed partition. I don't want install it again(as I have to update it to 11.04 again).

I have Windows XP in C drive, Windows 7 in D drive and Ubuntu 11.04 in E drive.

I am able to boot XP & 7, now want to add Ubuntu also, Please help me...

Thank You..

Hi Sub,

Have you tried using the free version of EasyBCD to add an entry for Ubuntu? It works by chainloading the Windows bootloader to the GRUB bootloader, and may fix your problem.

EasyBCD - Download.com
