I was working to remove my Debian 7.1, since the VMWare compatibility matrix shows I need to use 6.*.

While re-partitioning, it looks like I've made it impossible for GRUB to locate the Win7 partition, and I can no longer boot to Win7.

I would like to get my system to locate all partitions, then replace Debian 7.1 with Debian 6.*.

Here's my fdisk output:

root@debian:/
# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors

Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes


Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes

I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

Disk identifier: 0x21828f2f


   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

/dev/sda1              63       80324       40131   de  Dell Utility

Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary.

/dev/sda2   *       81920    29044735    14481408    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

/dev/sda3        29044736  1921595391   946275328    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

/dev/sda4      1921597438  1953523711    15963137    5  Extended

Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.

/dev/sda5      1952126976  1953523711      698368   82  Linux swap / Solaris

/dev/sda6      1921597440  1952126975    15264768   83  Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order

I am confident that sda3 is the partition holding my Win7.

Thanks for any assistance.
