    Default Win7 changing mbr? (bt4 w/grub)

    Hi all!

    I have a strange problem with a laptop dual booting win7 and BT4.

    I followed the guide on howto encrypt an USB-drive and install BT4 on it, but did it on the secondary hdd in my laptop. Everything went fine everything is installed and runs perfectly. Even the dual booting works, and win7 starts perfectly.

    BUT, this is the strange part, after I used win7 and restarted the laptop, grub gives me "error 22".
    Well ok... I think and load up a live BT4 cd, and reconfigure my grub:

    Code:
    grub
    grub> find /grub/stage1
    grub> root (hd1,0)
    grub> setup (hd0)
    Then my grub works again, till next time I load win7, and so on. BT4 works every time, can shutdown and start again without problems, it's only when win7 shuts the laptop down.

    The strange thing is, win7 works perfectly, no errors, no repair menu (I seen some references to this problem on the forum, while I looked for a solution).

    Another thing I might need to mention is my win7 has no small "recovery" partition.

    Please help me find a permanent working solution to this problem, it's getting slightly annoying having to rebuild my grub after every win7 boot.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi again.

    Just bumping, as I haven't gotten any responses!

    Can anyone at least confirm if they have or can replicate the problem?

    Please close/delete this thread, as it's no longer relevant, I reformatted the laptop, and installed win7 singleboot. I now have my BT4R1 on another laptop.
