Re: dual boot with win 7
I lost my windows 7 password and couldn't recover it. Wound up doing a fresh install of Windows 7. As expected, it overwrote grub. The install needs to reboot several times, so that part was good. This time I wrote down the password in a couple of places! To get Fedora running, I loaded the fedora 16 install dvd, and selected install. I chose upgrade, and new bootloader. When I rebooted, grub was there, giving me all my kernel options as well as windows 7. All data and programs were there, including my Virtual Box stuff. If I had any really important files, I would have first backed them up to a DVD or my external drive. I must say, Windows is very clunky in installation - who needs 4 reboots?
