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.

Work around for slow startup on Acer Aspire One with ZFS boot volume

Hi All,

The engineering group in California got my One safely.

The slow start is being caused by the command /usr/sbin/zfs volinit call , in /lib/svc/method fs-usr and devices-local.

If you edit the two files and put & at the end of the lines the slow boot goes away.

Engineering still has my One and is looking for a correct patch.
