Hello,

The weird thing is that it had worked. Now, suddenly, Windows 7 doesn't want to boot anymore.
Vector still works. I don't know what I've installed (MBR I suppose)
In other distro I could solve this by adding a line in /boot/grub/menu.lst, but now there isn't one.
How can I fix this and is there a way to see, with what I'm working? (grub, grub2, mbr, lilo)

What is the error message you receive? If you're running GRUB2, your entries are in /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

It says : BootMGR is missing
press CTRL + ALT + DELL to restart

Do I have to install something? Or is there a textfile that I can change, but this isn't the problem I think?

You are probably using lilo. Check and see if you have an /etc/lilo.conf file. lilo doesn't really work with the new Win 7 MBR. I think grub does work though. You could also use something like EasyBCD to modify the Windows bootloader to include VL.

Code:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda3
label = VectorLinux
append = "splash=silent"
initrd = /boot/initrd
read-only


other = /dev/sda2
label = Windows-sda2
table = /dev/sda

this is what I got.. What do I need to change?
