What I want: Apple icon (direct to OS X), Tux (direct to Ubuntu), Windows (direct to Windows 7). Also, a FAT32 partition for sharing data between OSes, but that shouldn't appear in the menu because it has no OS.
What I actually get:
- Apple icon works perfectly, goes directly to OS X.
- Windows icon goes to GRUB bootloader that defaults to Ubuntu. I have to manually choose Windows 7 from the GRUB menu
- FAT32 "Shared Data" partition appears as an option, even though there's no OS on it, just data.
- Oddly enough, Windows 7 can't see the FAT32 partition, but OS X and Ubuntu can.
What I did: I used Gparted to split Bootcamp's Windows partition into Windows/Ubuntu/Linux Swap.
