I had setup my system for triple boot with Windows, F10 & Suse. I had the Windows partition and then installed F10 setting up Grub to load the other two.
All went fine and was able to choose to boot to Windows which worked.
I then installed Suse, choosing the bootloader to be on the partition for Suse. This installed fine and can now choose to boot into Suse which works. F10 still works as expected, but when I choose to boot Windows, I just end up with a Grub command line.
I can't see how the Windows partition could have been affected. I can still see all the files in there, but it just wont boot.
My grub.conf is fine, but for reference is

Also for reference is my fdisk -l

Partition table entries are not in disk order
This is not really a Linux issue but does anyone know how I can 'repair' this Windows partition without affecting any other partitions. I don't have a Windows install CD. If I boot off FreeDOS, is there a command to repair the 'bootability' of the Windows partition only?
