I just got my Windows 7 up and running. It should be a dual boot, but my Vista partition is missing from the boot options. How can I add this back in?
I had the same problem. Just go into the disk partition manager and assign it a drive letter. For some reason, when you dual boot, vista recognizes the windows 7 partition, but win 7 doesn't recognize the vista partition. Easy fix though.
run bcdedit.exe (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709667.aspx) or you can install VistaBootPro3.3 (Google it)
ah crap, i read your question wrong! Sorry about that :)
Do what the other poster said.
Thanks guys. I thought about VistaBootPro after I wrote this, but I wasn't sure if it would work with W7. I'll give it a shot.
Alas, VistaBootPro is no longer free. I'll have to find a way around that or learn some command-line-fu.
Go there, it's a softpedia link
I downloaded it here and it works. Not sure if this is exactly what you want but...
Thanks djb6. I'm crossing my fingers for Windows 7 support.
Yeah it works on my copy of win7
