I'm trying to set up a dual-boot situation with my Windows 7 and Fedora 17 partitions and I left the install grub to /boot option on when I was installing Fedora. I would like to be able to add Windows 7 to the grub boot loader, but the advice I've seen online says to modify /boot/grub/grub.conf, but I don't have that file.

$ ls /boot/grub/

Has anyone done this? I'm thinking that I'll just need to re-install everything and use the Windows boot loader, but it would be nice to use grub instead.

  1. Connect Windows 7 Disk.
  2. Boot with Fedora Disk.
  3. Launch Terminal login root user.
  4. update-grub
  5. Restart.
  • What exactly do you mean by update-grub? Is that a program? If so, when I try it I get command not found. Jun 9, 2012 at 15:22

    @kyle update-grub is a Ubuntu (and perhaps Debian) command for updating grub. You might want to try grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg to update grub.

grub.conf is not in /grub but in /boot/grub2.
