For Windows 7 on a system with More than One drive , and using the defacto windows Boot loader
Neosmart neogrub works fine as a Linux Loader , it will boot to neo-grub, look for grub on a specified or any drive then chain-load the grub on the Linux drive without issue.

Neosmart makes a BCD GUI Editor so for your windows user it will default to boot Windows but give a menu to boot Sabayon , Etc Etc from windows boot loader.

so you'll get a windows boot menu (T-n) n=30 secounds or ? specified. then windows will boot.
Windows 7 or 8
Sabayon Linux
Windows XP
Boot CD Rom
