Grub2 not seeing Windows - Page 3

post #21 of 22
It doesn't look like to me you have windows 7 installed. Thought it used more then one partition when it's a BIOS install. Also I'm assuming you did install both using BIOS? If so and I'm remembering correctly they won't be gpt partitions then. Like asked can you still boot into Windows, it should appear in the BIOS menu where you can select bootable devices.

Edit run the command bellow and post its output.
Code:
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS

I'll definitely give it a whirl when I get home in the next couple days. I'll post back my findings

BIOS

I have a very limited BIOS which does not allow me to specify the second drive explicitly since it's an aftermarket modification
