After install fedora, I've installed Windows 7. I can't boot fedora now. It could be GRUB problem...right?

I downloaded Fedora 18 desktop version (GNOME base) 64bit, and made live USB. I can boot with this live USB, but I cannot find rescue menu.

Where can I find rescue menu?

There are only two options.

First one is '' Second one is 'Verify and Boot'

Help me please...:-(

Thank you so much! I solved this problem.

I used Fedora-18 install DVD (My Fedora was ver.16) and followed Rabin's link. (only one difference was : my linux is GRUB2, so right command for me was grub2-install /dev/sda)

Now there is no problem. again, Thank you so much!

The live media does not contain a rescue mode at all. Only the installation ISOs have it. I've found multiple posts on how one can use the live CD to re-install grub, but they don't seem to work 100% of the time. The commands might look simple, but sometimes there's a lot more to them than these posts care to point out.

I'd recommend downloading the DVD iso and using the rescue mode from it.
