Windows 7 and Fedora 16: Boot menu problems
I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Fedora 16. Haven't been able to get an answer on the Fedora or Linux forums.
My GRUB 2 bootloader menu has very tiny letters that I cannot see; I suspect this has to do with my graphics card for which there is no driver in Fedora 16. That's fine because after a few seconds it goes into Winloader Bootmenu, which is visible and it gives me a choice between Windows 7 and Fedora. Then I get a new bootloader menu, listing all the kernels available, including Windows and Windows Recovery.
Is that last bootmenu produced by Windows or by Fedora?
Is there a way to customize that (last) particular menu as far as colors? It's white on black, and the highlighted items turn cyan blue. Am I looking at a MBR menu at that moment? Is this something that gets configured in Fedora? I have looked at the grub settings and menu colors in the grub.d file. Nowhere does it indicate those colors.
Thank you in advance.
Re: Windows 7 and Fedora 16: Boot menu problems
I think that you will need to update/reinstall the boot loader grub2, which you should be able to do from the install/live disk. I think it may be possible the install/upgrade does not update the grub menu.lst file, to reflect the correct kernel version. You can refer to the below link for some more help:
