Getting Vista to load from Grub [Linux Mint]
I was originally running two separate installs of Vista, deleted the first one and replaced it with Linux Mint yesterday. Vista did not appear in the grub loader at start-up, and I haven't been able to boot from it by adding it to the menu.lst
Here's my sudo fdisk -l
As for actual partition order, it went like this from start to end:
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x06f506f5
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 9258 74364853+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 9259 19457 81923467+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 9624 19439 78846988+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6 9259 9623 2931799+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda7 19440 19457 144553+ 83 Linux
Partition table entries are not in disk order
144mb ext3 at end
What I've tried so far is to add the following to my menu.lst:
and tried hd0,1 through hd0,9 and all returned "invalid device requested"
title Windows Vista 64
The format for hdx,x is drive, partition right?
Not sure where to go from here. If I remove linux mint I'll still have to make a new mbr so that Vista will load right?
