Actually, it might work on bootcamp (maybe only Lion and before, they changed some things recently to not allow XP). According to the Boot Camp wikipedia article*, "Its functionality relies on BIOS emulation through EFI and a partition table information synchronization mechanism between GPT and MBR combined". So it might currently work, it might not.

I'm new to all this so go easy. I thought I'd give Puppy a whirl on an old laptop using the Windows installer but when I booted up it would always go straight to Puppy with no option to boot into Windows 7.

I ran Grub4Dos From within Puppy which recognised my Windows installation and created an entry for it but when I try to chose that option I either get a grey progress bar which zips to the end and sits and does nothing ("Windows") or a it just boots into Puppy ("Windows Vista/2008/7").

My menu.lst looks like this at the moment, any help would be appreciated.

Code:
# menu.lst produced by grub4dosconfig-v
color white/blue black/cyan white/black cyan/black
timeout 10
default 0

# Frugal installed Puppy

title Puppy slacko 5.3 (sda1/Puppy-Linux-530)
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies /Puppy-Linux-530/initrd.gz
  kernel /Puppy-Linux-530/vmlinuz  pmedia=atahd psubdir=Puppy-Linux-530 pfix=fsck
  initrd /Puppy-Linux-530/initrd.gz

maybe ---> find --set-root
is better???


I had a similar problem a couple of days ago except I had
just installed a version of Ubuntu and my computer would only boot up
ubuntu.

So I took an old CD of Racy (Puppy) linux
and booted up with it and ran Shinobar's Grub 4 DOS

That fixed my menu.lst

Looks like the UUID given is for the Windows 7 recovery partition.

Post

Code:
blkid


readout if your Puppy install supports that command.
You should have more than 1 UUID shown with the blkiid command.

Code:
# blkid
/dev/sda1: LABEL="/data" UUID="9113698c-08bd-4c40-92b3-1c501c32c9b2" TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="/" UUID="dd99cccc-61d9-4e74-81ed-f3cde6253891" TYPE="ext2"

Deacon: What was the problem you had? If it's a bug in the program, I would like to patch it so others don't encounter the same problem.

That's a good point.

Give me a few days and I'll try to replicate the environment. I have another Win computer handy. That... and I kind of forgot. Sorry.

(edit) Trying to remember... ok. The files copied. However, in the bootloader, choosing Puppy caused it to flash "(something I forgot):hd1" and turned back to the menu. My guess is it didn't direct to the right place. I'll try to recreate it next week; otherwise I will assume it's a flaw on the system I was working on.

Can you be more specific then "in the bootloader"? Was it GRUB4DOS (puppy logo in background) or the Windows bootloader (selection between "Windows ..." and "Start Puppy Linux")?

Was Windows installed on the C drive, or another disk?

It was definitely the C drive. 90-95% sure it was the Windows bootloader. It was Win7.

Thank you for the info!

If you can reproduce it, it would be helpful to see the output of running
Code:
bcdedit
in an administrator cmd, see if C:\grldr, C:\grldr.mbr exist, and what is in C:\menu.lst.
