That was until I stumbled upon this article. And moreover, why should it matter how things are partitioned for a service pack install anyway? I still have a dual-boot system, but only if i change the boot-sequence in BIOS to boot from sda (linux) where W7 is @ sdb. his comment is here I assume you mean automount and not autoboot in your second question and that policy is enabled by default, turning it off is actually what causes one form of this problem
But the GRUB - no using the Microsoft bootloader - was not the cause of the problem. But the Fedora install moved the boot flag (though I didn't install Fedora's bootloader ; I use sudo update-grub on Ubuntu).
