Windows 7: Windows 7 32-Bit and Linux Fedora 64-Bit

Windows 7 32-Bit and Linux Fedora 64-Bit

Ok, so I have a Toshiba P205 and I bought windows 7 32-Bit. At the time I really didn't understand the difference between 32 and 64 bit. When I found out that it was just on how the processors were managed and if your computer could run 64-Bit it's probably better to run it, especially if you have 4 GB of ram.

Well, when I downloaded and installed Fedora 64 Bit, I get the message

BOOTMGR could not be found. Press CTRL ALT DELETE to reboot. Well I did that.

I tried using Windows 7 start up disk to see if I could repair the problem but it says that Windows 7 could not be found, well I reformatted my computer and deleted my entire hard drive to start fresh. I did that installed windows 7 again and also Fedora. I really want to keep both, is there a way to have both of these programs running in harmony or am I out of luck?

Try using two partitions, one for Win 7 & one for Fedora.

Dual-Boot Win7 and Linux Fedora 19
Hi, I've just installed Linux Fedora 19 within my Win7. I was expecting that I'm going to use some 3rd party software to create Dual-Boot, but Linux did it all by itself. So I guess the using of software like Grub is not needed, or?
