I have 3x boot:
Windows (XP) on partition 1
Linux swap space on partition 2
Linux on partition 3
W7 new install on partition 4

After installing, I restored GRUB correctly.

Before I installed W7, I could choose Windows from GRUB boot menu, and XP booted. SINCE I installed W7, GRUB still does the loading like it should, with a twist...

If I NOW choose Windows from GRUB boot menu, I don't get XP, but I get a WINDOWS loader, with W& or XP to choose from. Both choices load properly.

So here's the problem... If I like W7, and activate it, what will happen if I wipe the XP partition? Will I be able to 'Repair W7 loader', with W7 on partition 4?
