Windows 7 boot loader success

Hi All,

 So I have gotten the Windows 7 boot loader to work.

 With Windows 7 running I went into control panel, system, create and format hard disk partitions.

I set the Windows 7 partition as active.

On the reboot only Windows 7 comes up.

I downloaded and installed Easy BCD.

The second tab in Easy BCD allows you to create a Linux grub boot entry in the Windows 7 boot menu.

When I restart I have the Windows 7 boot menu with two entries, Windows 7 and OpenSolaris.

Selecting OpenSolaris then gives you the standard OpenSolaris grub boot menu.

I couldn't get easybcd to work properly on Windows 7. I checked on a VM image dual booting Vista and OpenSolaris and it does work on that. Strange.

It seems that the new version 2.0 beta of EasyBCD \*does\* support Windows 7 - yay!
