So i have windows installed over a raid0, and i have ubuntu installed on my 3rd hard drive,

After installing ubuntu and the boot loader to my 3rd drive, Linux booted fine and dandy, so i went into grub menu.lst to add windows 7 back into the boot loader, added the following code and hit restart,

title Windows 7
root (hd1,0)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
chainloader +1

windows shows up in grub just like it should be when i go to boot it i get the dreaded "BOOTMGR is missing" error...

I have tried using the repair function on the W7 dvd, but with no luck, it was unable to identify any installed versions of windows.

any ideas on where to go from here?

**Edit prob should have it under the W7 category if there is one, sorry!**

Update

I have worked out why it wont boot, i have windows 7 on partition two for some reason, So for the boot command to work would it look like this?

title Windows 7
root (hd0,2)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
chainloader +1

Being hard drive 0, partition 2?
