Problem Dual Boot Arch and Windows 7
You may not read this, coz this is situation before problem:
First, I wanna tell my situation before I installed arch linux. I am a noob to the bootloader thing (I mean I know what is a boot loader and what it does but noob in case of installing it, configuring it). I first had opensuse with windows 7. I installed opensuse by creating root, home, boot, swap partitions on my extended partitions and windows takes up three primary partitions. When I switch on my computer, I would be greeted by the green suse login with options for suse and windows(Of course, I configured it to point windows). When I choose suse, I would be taken into suse. But when i choose windows, again a boot screen will appear asking for windows and suse (but this is a windows boot screen). Now, when i choose windows here also, it will boot into windows. But when i choose suse, i would be taken back to the suse boot screen, like a loop.This was my condition and I planned to switch to arch.
I installed arch as indicated in the beginner's guide at arch wiki. I installed everything correctly and everything was fine... I also, installed osprober and included the windows option in grub. Now, also Its like the previous login... i.e, when i choose windows at grub, again a windows boot screen will appear. But the windows boot screen contained the SUSE name also, and when I click suse, it says, no such thing exists. So, I decided to delete it. I installed EasyBCD and deleted the SUSE entry in windows and there, I did a great mistake...! I issued command to write MBR and also to to install BCD! Now, everything got corrupted and no os boots. Then, finally, I used windows OS disk and performed startup repair. Now, when i start my computer, it goes straight to windows. I dont know what happened to grub.. and i know that the linux is intact. only the bootloader is corrupt. Some where, i got suggestion to reinstall arch. But I know there is a way to do it without reinstalling! Please help guys...
Thankyou for taking time to read.
