Windows 7: Neogrub for Windows 7/Fedora 17 dual boot

Neogrub for Windows 7/Fedora 17 dual boot

Hi to everyone. After I had some troubles and after noticing some speed differences I decided to delete Grub2 from Fedora installing. Now I'm trying to find some solutions for using the normal Windows 7 boot MBR through EasyBCD, but I didn't succeed: I tryed creating the Fedora voice in the menu with each one of all the options avaible in EasyBCD, but neither of them worked.

Ah, I noticed that with "Grub (Legacy)" appears a weird grub terminal in which I can write something, but I totally don't know what to do with it.

So, at the end, I decided to use the NeoGrub option, but I don't know what to write in the config file, all the examples I found on the web didn't work. So, I would ask you the favour to help me with it.

My configuration is:

hd(0,0) Windows 7
hd(0,1) Fedora /boot
hd(0,2) Fedora 17 Partition

All is in the same HD with 3 partitions. Expecially, my problem is finding the directories of "kernel" and "initrd" to write in the config file.

Thanks for the attention.
