How do I boot my laptop from Windows 7?

How do I boot my laptop from Windows 7?

Postby jcetienne » Sun Sep 18, 2011 3:47 am

I've just installed Zorin OS 5 on my laptop, my understanding was that I was supposed to have the option on rebooting the system to start either Win 7 or Zorin. Do I need to do something else to enable that option? Thanks for any help!!!

What option did you select when doing the install, if you are booting directly into Zorin, then I fear you may well have erased your Windows partition!!!.
You should have a list of options to boot from, the first one on the list is Zorin and somewhere down the list is Windows loader!!.

If you selected "Use entire disk" when you were installing, you won't have a Windows partition anymore!!.

I hope this helps you further.
