    Default Win 7 disappeared

    I installed bt5 on /dev/sda7 with win7 on /dev/sda1(installed first).
    I installed them side by side as per the options.
    After restart, I don't see any dual boot screen.
    Also,Bt5 does not detect win7.

    How to fix this??

    thanks for any help available

    Well as mentioned in the Wiki, you should be an advanced user to use Backtrack, so quick sum up: either you deleted it either it's still there but it's not in grub in which case you're lucky because you only need to add Windows 7 in your grub.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Did you follow a tutorial on setting BT up in a dual boot config with windows? Did you add windows to the boot loader?
    Also,Bt5 does not detect win7.
    Be more specific. Do you mean you can't see your windows drive in Bt5?
    How to fix this??
    Again be more specific....

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
