    Fedora 17 missing from boot options after boot repair

    i installed fedora 17, yet another distro, it had a bootloader of its own, and it used to show every OS in the list
    now i reinstalled grub2, cause i wanted to make windows as default OS, and now fedora is gone

    what can i do to get it back in the boot options?

    i tried boot repair again, but same thing

    Did you let Fedora use its default of a LVM?

    In Ubuntu you need to add the lvm drivers and someone posted you still need to mount the Fedora partition to get the os-prober to see it.

    sudo apt-get install lvm2
    #mount the Fedora partition
    sudo update-grub
