My machine dual boots between Windows 7 and OpenSI have a configuration having windows 7 and openSUSE 11.3. However there is a problem with the version of openSUSE I have - it seems to be unstable - so I am intending to remove it.

On running the following command:

bcdedit /store C:\boot\bcd

I get:

Windows Boot Manager

identifier {bootmgr} .............................

Windows Boot Loader

identifier {default} .................................

A few more details suggest the bootloader is fine.

My MBR points to GRUB. Can I modify the MBR to point to my Windows bootloader?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.


Even though it's technically not an exact duplicate question, its answer is "Yes." and the further answer as to how is exactly the same as the answer to "How to restore WindowXP loader within running Windows?".
