I just installed fedora 12 on my laptop.
fedora is booting and working fine, but the problem is that now windows isn't booting.
when I try to boot windows i get the next message:

"BOOTMGR is missing"

I looked at /boot/grub/menu.lst, and those are the lines for booting windows:
title win7
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

then i checked with fdisk -l and verified that windows is actually installed on the second partition (sda2).

the next thing i tried was to use the repair option at the windows 7 installation DVD.
the problem is that when i try to preform a startup repair, the installation DVD doesn't recognize my existing windows 7 installation, and therefore wasn't able to repair it.

if it's relevant, here are some more details on my machine:
HP probook 4310
windows 7 64-bit
fedora 12 32-bit
i have one sata HD which I devided into 6 partitions
{a system partition of the laptop, windows 7 (NTFS), swap, /boot (ext3), / (ext4), /home (ext4)}

i'll be glad if anyone can help me with this problem.
