Linux CentOS 6 e Windows 7 dual boot – BOOTMGR is missing

Posted in Linux at 1:38 pm by alessiodini

Today I installed CentOS6 on my notebook for KVM purposes.
After the installation I tried to test Windows boot and i got this error:

BOOTMGR is missing
Press CTRL + ALT + DEL to restart

I immediately tought “damn i’m using my work-notebook this is bad”.
From Linux I saw /etc/grub entries and for Windows I saw:

root (hd0,7)

Watching fdisk -l output i saw the first partition with little size and I tried to map it as follow:

root (hd0,1)

After this I was able to boot Windows 🙂
