I am new with Linux and my laptop has Ubuntu 12.10 and Win7/64bit. Grub boot loader makes me choose which to boot at startup. I want to clean re-install of Win7 without changing configuration of GRUB and UBUNTU. Is it possible? If possible please how? Thanks.
Here's the general outline:
Reinstalling Windows 7 Reinstate GRUB Mount the /boot partition Install the boot loader
Step One Re-install Win7.
Step Two Load up from your Ubuntu live CD, and then run these commands.
If you DO NOT have a separate /boot partition:
If you have a SEPARATE /boot partition:
Step Four Then continue with those commands:
And restart. It should work fine and boot both systems.
install Grub Customizer and Boot Repair:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer boot-repair
