My laptop uses grub 1.5 to load Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. I want to upgrade Ubuntu with a fresh install and still be able to access Windows 7. If I remember correctly, grub is no longer used. What do I need to be aware of before I reinstall Ubuntu so that I can still have access to Windows 7? I have software installed on the Windows 7 partition that would not be easy to recover.
Thanks for the help!
