I have successfully installed Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.2 on a seperate SSD drive. Used the attach/detach method to instal. I detached disk2 (Ubuntu Drive) then installed Windows 7 on disk1. Then I disconnected disk1, connected disk2 and installed Ubuntu. I read this was a good way to do it as it will prevent Grub2 from overwriting the Windows bootloader.
Not both disk1 and disk2 are hooked up and I can now boot into each OS successfully by selecting the various disk at BIOS level. I would like to skip the BIOS and auto boot into Ubuntu then use Grub2 to select if I want to boot into Windows 7.
Grub2 is not working for me and I was thinking about using Boot Repair to repair Grub2 from a LiveUSB. My worry though, is that if I run Boot Repair, it will overwrite my windows bootloader? Should I run Boot Repair with my windows drive unhooked?
What are your thoughts to get Grub2 working without touching disk2?
