    I have xp installed on a sata drive 0 Partition 0
    I have vista installed on ide drive 0
    I have mandriva installed on ide drive 1
    The grub mbr is on sata drive 0 partition 0 and boots all three
    Boot Mandriva
    Boot Windows-XP
    Boot Windows-Vista

    Now I installed Win7 on sata drive 0 partition 1
    but win7 boot mgr attaches to vista on ide drive 0
    So if I point grub to sata drive 0 partition 1 to boot win7 it errors
    if I boot vista I get the dual boot option vista or win7

    If I unplug the ide drives and do a fixboot /fixmbr
    then it attaches to xp on sata drive 0 partition 0
    Same error to boot win7
    Now boot xp and get the dual boot option

    So is there a way to keep win7's boot mgr on win7's partion with out messing with the other partitions
    so I can get Grub to boot win7 like the rest
