No matter which one of these I choose, I get a black screen and the HD remains idle. I tried resetting the BIOS to boot off of the HD, and still no dice.

    If this is a monitor issue, how do I go about disabling Xorg (if indeed that is the problem)?
    I don't think Xorg is your problem because grub (or lilo) seems to work fine (linux isn't even booted so the problem is with Windows). The Windows bootloader seems to work too.

    Last week I had similar problems, and this link helped me: http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm

    Any ideas ?
    default=7 ??? You only have three entries so the maximum is 2 (from 0 to 2)

    If you want to boot to Windows, set it to 2. Otherwise set it to 0 (if you have more then one processor I think) or 1

    EDIT: All the entries are hidden, so maybe you want to comment(#) 'hiddenmenu'

    The thing that says 'default=7' you should change to 'default=0' or 'default=1'
    or 'default=2' for windows

    and it's probably best to change the line 'hiddenmenu' to '#hiddenmenu'
