Hi, I recently Installed fedora 18. I have a 400 gig hard drive, with with windows previously being the only partition. I cut off about 140 gigs for fedora to use, both operating systems have plenty of space. The problem is, after installing fedora, the computer goes to a grub boot menu, but the only listing is fedora. I am unable to boot into windows currently, which is a serious detriment to my work. If anybody has any way for me to get back into windows, that would be great

There are several tools that can repair grub.

Try boot-repair, SystemRescueCD or Rescatux.

Have any of these tools been tested with Fedora? We're using GRUB2, not GRUB1. I've never read of any of these tools. If you use them, the fedora community may not be able to support you when things break.

I'm pretty sure they all work with grub2, and with Fedora.
