Windows 7 entry missing from Grub 2 boot loader

I happened to install fedora 18 live, and honestly it did take my life out when I noticed window 7 was not present in the boot loader list.

Well the fix is quite simple:

grub2-mkconfig > /tmp/boot.cfg

This command generates a new boot loader list by probing for the different OS’s installed on your system

cp /tmp/grub.cfg /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

This one is used to overwrite the previously made list

Reboot and Viola! 🙂
