I'm trying to have boot option for Backtrack 5 R3.  I've loaded Backtrack 5 R3...and once in a blue moon it actually decides to boot to it...I also have Windows 7 Ultimate loaded on the same hard drive which is taking up the partitions for ext1 and ext2....ext3 has Linux on it.  Some I get an error with grub that says there's not enough space to load....before any OS is loaded...most of the time it just boots to Windows.  How do I make it so I have the option of either having boot to Windows or Backtrack 5 (Linux)?

You can try http://www.supergrub...ubdiskdownload/


The download links are down but there is still a torrent link.


This is the old version which also rewrites your mbr to fix your boot entries. The new version can only boot systems but does not fix your mbr.

Backtrack has been deprecated - why would you be using it in the first place? ;) Use the current version

BackTrack 5 is OUTDATED and no longer supported – Downloads have been discontinued .
Please check the KALI LINUX project instead.
