2011-12-21 00:53:44 -0500 commented answer Fedora 16 & Win 7 Dual Boot Problems

Your C: drive Windows installation should be the one to mark bootable, the [SYSTEM] partition may be a Windows recovery partition created by your computer vendor. If these changes don't work and you can't boot at all, you can always boot into your F16 live .iso usb and run CFDISK from there.

Yes, through Fedora, through CFDISK. CFDISK is straightforward, Arrow keys to navigate and Enter key to select your option, descriptions for each option appear at bottom of terminal window as you move between them. To start CFDISK in a terminal, as root, enter 'cfdisk' command (e.g. # cfdisk ).

I have a multi-boot setup that boots Windows 7, F16, and two other linux distros using Fedora's GRUB2 boot loader installed to the MBR. My setup is as follows,

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *          63   136713149    68356543+   7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

I believe the Windows partition must be marked as active for Windows 7 to boot, that may be why your Windows recovery disk doesn't detect any operating systems. Set your Windows 7 system partition as the active boot partition and try your recovery disk again.

Are you sure that you've installed grub to the MBR of /dev/sda? You could try reinstalling F16 and ensuring that grub is installed to /dev/sda, and NOT your Fedora partition.

I don't believe that the packages required for Unity exist in any Fedora software repositories. However, there has been some effort to compile and install it under Arch Linux.

2011-11-19 14:05:02 -0500 asked a question No bluetooth after suspend.

I can work around this problem by restarting the service after my computer wakes up from suspend with, 'service bluetooth restart', but would like to fix the problem permanently. Fedora 16, HP Compaq 6510b. Bluetooth is not available after wake up from suspend.
