Windows 7: Problems with boot loaders with dual booting

Problems with boot loaders with dual booting

Hi guys!!!

I have one disk partitioned like this:
  1. 100MB primary partition created bu Windows 7
  2. primary C: partition with Windows 7 installed on it
  3. primary partition as data storage
  4. primary extended partition for Linux Mint and on it:
    a) logical partition for Linux installation
    b) logical partition for swap space
First I installed Windows and it was OK, but I made problem with Linux installation when I selected C partition, with Windows on it, to install boot loader for Linux on it. When I finished Linux installation and rebooted in Grub boot loader I could see both operating systems. Linux worked fine, but when I select Windows nothing happen. Then I tried to repair Windows boot loader with Windows installation DVD, and when I finished that I couldn't see neither of systems. Then I started Linux from CD and managed to return previous state when I can see both systems but only Linux can be started.
Please, do you have some good ideas?
Thanks.

I didn't managed to repair described situation, so I started both system installations from beginning. Everything is OK now.
Thanks for help gregrocker.

Did you even try the repairs that I gave you? They work for most of these cases.

Just for future reference.. I found it works quite well to keep the Windows boot menu with Grub as one of the choices. When you select Grub, then you get the Grub menu. This leaves lots of flexibility as you can have multiple kernels and custom Linux setups etc..
