Windows 7: Windows XP boot error when loading though GRUB2 bootloader

03 Oct 2014   #11


Will both Windows OS"s boot as now if you unplug the second drive?

If so then I'd keep the GRUB booting only to the second drive when you choose it from BIOS Boot Menu key.

If this isn't to your liking then uninstall GRUB and add your Linux installs from Windows 7 using EasyBCD as described by Barman in Where to install ubuntu in my system?
