How do I dual boot Fedora 19 and Windows 7?

I have two disks. The plan was to give each OS its own disk. I installed windows 7. Then fedora 19. I copied the boot record from Linux, performed the BCDEDIT requirement to get Linux into the boot manager prompts.

However, when I try to boot Linux, the screen goes blank and nothing happens. Ideas?

    One reason could be that you might be using 64-bit version of Fedora in 32-bi system.

    If this is not the case,then try repairing the bootloader.

    After repairing it,follow the suggestion of dual booting Windows and any Linux distro as mentioned in the below link -
