so...

1 ~ EFI system partition boot

^That is where you're running into issues is my guess. Not sure if Mint uses GRUB-EFI or not. Might have to wait for someone else to come help with that as I don't use EFI's, I stick with BIOS tongue.gif

There's a couple here that have set up grub with EFI.

Quick google if you want to do some light reading on it; https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFIBooting

Took the plunge--I have access to Windows 7 again. Just not sure about the efi file it mentioned.

Ah well, congrats tongue.gif

I wasn't sure as I haven't had to setup anything with EFI yet, so not sure if that was apart of it or not. But as long as the chainloader works then you should be good thumb.gif

Not sure if you have it working or not by your last post, But try what I suggested, third post.
A reinstall could fix your problem

Reinstalling grub is as easy as ` # grub-install /dev/sda `, you don't have to go through purging grub and grub2 ( mint 14 comes with grub2, not grub-legacy ) and reinstalling it isn't going to change the configuration process.

Yes, That is true, But a Purge gives a clean slate. I thought it might have been worth a try. It has also been known that sometimes a final release will contain legacy code, I once uninstalled a build of legacy grub from Ubuntu 11.04, Hence why I included it.
I still recommend OP to try it.
