I've installed Windows XP Proffesional, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10. On every boot my system nags me with 2 menu´s.

  1. Ubuntu Grub2 Bootloader (Ubuntu or Windows 7)
  2. Windows 7 Bootloader (Windows 7 or older)

The Windows 7 runs of a virtual Harddisk located on the XP Partition. How is it possible to put it all into Grub2?

@quack: I think some versions of Windows can boot from .vhd images, similar to Wubi booting Ubuntu. –  grawity Mar 25 '11 at 6:19

I have a way to use the simple, not ugly looking Windows boot-loader to display a clean interface asking you for which OS to boot into. For example, my computer asks me one of the following on start:

Windows Vista Ubuntu 10.04

If I don't press anything for five seconds, it boots into Windows. It has no clutter whatsoever. Follow the instructions on my blog over here.
