http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all. I was wondering if anybody could offer me advice on a little dilemma I have? I have a 500GB HDD and have partitioned it and have the following OS's installed as follows: 400 ish GB for Windows 7 64 Bit, 60GB for Ubuntu 11.10 and 20GB for Windows XP 32 Bit. XP was the last OS I installed. This somehow wiped out the GRUB 2 Bootloader. I managed to re-install GRUB 2 and then edit it through the Terminal, so that it now displays "Windows XP" in the GRUB 2 menu upon bootup. Upon bootup the menu illustrates: Ubuntu 11.10, Windows XP and Windows 7 as the 3 available (Hardware)
