I have updated grub but it doesn't appear windows boot in ubuntu boot manager.
I had installed Fedora 16 , then installed windows 7 professional and windows 7 home basic.
then installed ubuntu 11.04 on the win 7 Home Basic partion. But after this the ubuntu bootloader doesn't give option to boot windows. fedora 16 and ubuntu are booting normally.

Before it i was using EasyBcd to triple boot but after installing the ubuntu the bootloader options are changed automatically to ubuntu bootloader.

Please give me soln to boot triple OS's.

Re: Please give me soln to boot triple OS's

Thread moved from an old basically irrelevant thread to a new thread.

Some ideas and possibilities to consider...
  • Create a custom menu entry for Windows in Ubuntu's GRUB 2 boot loader (a menuentry with chainloader in /etc/grub.d/40_custom followed by update-grub).
  • Install Fedora's GRUB 2 as your main boot loader and run the grub2-mkconfig command (who knows, it may find them all).
  • Repair the Windows boot loader and go back to what you had before with EasyBCD (add Fedora and Ubuntu to the Windows menu).
  • Repair the Windows boot loader and try Grub2Win. It's a new version of WINGRUB that can be installed in Windows and boot GRUB 2 systems directly from Windows. It's sort of an alternative to the EasyBCD method.
No promises.

There are other ways to boot multiple systems.
