    Hi ,

    Can anyone please help me out with the steps to dual boot Windows 7 and Fedora or for that matter any other distro. I don't want to edit grub and screw up my MBR :p ( I found this article on lifehacker but I would prefer a simpler way)

    I already have Windows XP and Windows 7 dual booting on my PC. Will simply installing Linux in a new partition do the trick ( I mean will Windows 7 boot manager take care of it.. It looks like easyBCD to me :p ? )

    Any help is appreciated :)

    same scenario as mine,
    got xp and ubuntu to dual boot on msi-vr420

    now i got triple boot; xp, ubuntu and 7
    just make another partition on the disk, install 7 on it.
    but right now boot manager came in this way:
    1st screen : grub displays : ubuntu or windows, select windows it displays : xp or 7?
    ofcourse you still need recovering grub using linux livecd.

    i'm also a noob regarding grub :eek:
    maybe someone can teach me how to make grub display all 3 in a screen :confused::D

    Ubuntu is a good distro and it does all the dual boot stuff for you. :D:D
