i first install fedora 20 and it's working fine then i install windows 7

as the Fedora 20 in not listed in windows boot manager i try "EasyBCD" but it does'nt work

then i insert Fedora 20 DVD and run in rescue mode

it will show me "now resue envirnoment will find linux paritition and mount it in /mnt/sysimage"

but it will show me "you do not have any linux parition"

after that i manually try to mount the parition but could'nt.

also try chroot /mnt/sysimage but it is unable to mount .

what if you install win7 first, give a free partition for fedora then install fedora on that free partition?

Doesn't your system have a boot menu? Pressing 'F10' does it for me. If you get started, see some answers on efibootmgr if you want to configure the system boot menu.

Is this system using BIOS or UEFI?

Also from the rescue environment use this command parted -l | fpaste it'll upload the output to , you can then post a link to it here. The output of parted should show the partitions layout on the HDD attached to the system.

EasyBCD does not work with GPT file systems. Add a windows entry manually might work though.
