View Full Version : [SOLVED] Adding Windows 7 to Grub Menu (Installed on VirtaulBox)

April 3rd, 2010, 10:59 PM
Hello, I've done some searching and haven't found anyone with the same problem as me. I recently installed Windows 7 on Virtual Box (running within Ubuntu Karmic 9.10), and it runs great. However I want to also add Windows 7 to the Grub Menu, so I can choose at the start between the Ever-Glorious Ubuntu and the Depressingly-Drab Windows 7.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Because VirtualBox is a program running within Ubuntu you will not be able to boot directly to it. If you install Windows 7 nativity on your machine you will be able to add it to Grub. However, for future reference you should install Windows before you install Ubuntu, because then Grub will automatically detect and add it to the list.
