So what is wrong with the grub ?? and I didn't get what you want exactly , what did you mean by

I install windows 7 in fedora running system
windows 7 isn't applicatuin to be installed in fedora


To run it in a running Fedora system, you need a virtual machine manager such as VMware or VirtualBox so you can install/run Windows in a virtual machine. That way, your Fedora applications continue to run while you simultaneously run Windows applications. I do that all the time.


if you want dual boot system

  1. install windows 7 in first partition or /dev/sda1
  2. then istall distro linux your like
  3. grub will auto detect your windows

use virtual box or qemu

$ qemu -cdrom YOUR_DISTRO.iso -boot d -m 1024
