Leave aside GRUB, it did its job and launched Win 7. Only that the disk zone of its OS loader was damaged (don't know how, but detected by chkdsk and supposedly repaired, by the log) and I can't get the Repair menu. That's all. So, the question is how can I get that menu, because now I get the message "Please insert the installation disk and reboot"; but when I reboot I pass through GRUB and Microsoft didn't think they can share the system with other OS!
Also, I can't update to Win 7 SP1 on a dual-boot system because Windows doesn't find the partition. You still blame GRUB?
Anyway, any idea how to get that Repair menu?
Did you try what Theog suggested in post#2
