Well,
Tune-Up Utilities was not the problem.
Anything else, no.

Hello Enrique, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

If when you see this screen:

MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record-mbr_04_a.png

there is no Windows 7 showing, do not worry. Do not stop. You can continue to the next step and choose the "Command Prompt" option.

Cheers!
Robert

Robert,

Thank you for your welcome.

I went on with the procedure, everything looks fine, but when I reboot the machine I've get the message "Missing operating system".
After that I've reinstalled fedora 12 with its grbu and I'm able to boot both OSs.

Regards,

Enrique

Sure, Andy. I am happy to help all I can. Can you give me something to work with? Your description was:

"Instead of the "Starting Windows" boot screen, I get a "Loading Files" screen like when you start Safe Mode, even when booting into normal mode. After that, it gives hardware information and then after that it goes to the login screen."

This description is just to vague to base any diagnostic conclusion, except that perhaps it was caused by some software newly installed.

Previously, I asked you to watch carefully as you reboot your computer (perhaps even more than once) and take note of what files are being loaded, what hardware info is being shown, or whatever you can catch and report back here.

When some of my computers boot up, the first screen shows text describing the video card present, then the boot routine that tests memory and searches for hard drives, then a screen showing what has been found by the bios, then the starting windows screen. This is normal. Many computers have a setting in the bios that skips these steps and goes strait to starting windows. So without more input from you, I can't be sure you even have a "problem"?

Cheers!

I am glad that works for you. Grub is very friendly!
