Windows 7: Corrupt but working NTFS partitions, Ubuntu doesn't show them at all

You're welcome.

If at alll possible to sort all Linux onto another HD you'll have a lot less problems booting via the BIOS where GRUB isn't even involved.

If not use Dual Boot - Windows 7 and Linux - Windows 7 Forums

Windows 7 64-bit, Vista 64-bit, XP SP3, Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

I think that my trial boot manager configuration is good if it's properly configured. I'm using it for 1,5 years now. IT's comfortable.
You turn on the PC, and you can select XP(nope, you select NTLDR, but no other NTLDR required system are installed, so technically it's XP), Win7, Vista, and GRUB2. If you decide in some seconds that you would rather prefer win7 this time, because you remember that you'd like to watch a silverlight stream, you go back from GRUB to BOOTMGR and go on.
But this time it was more tricky with grub2...
So I'll stick to this solution as long as it works with little effort.

Help! Installed Ubuntu, deleted the Ubuntu Partitions. No boot!
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP Mini 110-1116NR, then deleted the partitions that had Ubuntu on them, not knowing that Ubuntu comes with GRUB2, and sets itself as the default boot for that system. Now that GRUB2 is not installed, since it was on my only HDD, it looks for the GRUB2...
