where to download os-prober for RHEL 7 Server?

Latest response

I've installed RHEL 7 Server but dual boot with Windows Server 2008 R2 doesn't work, by some reason GRUB2 doesn't see Windows.

That's why I want to execute "yum install -y os-prober". But my server is not internet-connected. I've tried to find "os-prober" rpm on DVD, but it is not there.

Where can I download os-prober rpm for RHEL 7 Server?

If you have a different internet connected system, you can download the package directly from RHN -> redhat enterprise -> 7 -> os-prober:

https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/rhel---7/x86_64/2456/os-prober/1.58-5.el7/x86_64/fd431d51/package

After a sneakernet transfer to the target system, yum localinstall should fix you up.

Hello Oleg,
You can setup your Installation Media as a repo (which is a nice option for disconnected systems). You could even use the RHEL 7 ISO if you wanted.

To find the package (once you have a repo configure) you can do the following:

yum whatprovides */os-prober
yum search os-prober

On my Fedora system os-prober is part of the Group "System Environment/Base"

Here is an example from a Fedora 20 host

[root@cypher ~]# yum whatprovides */os-prober

I have also recommended to folks that they look in to rEFInd

Thanks James and James

After all I resolved my problem in completely different way
I just used this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJOCWhW6Stw and I was able to install dual-boot system without os-prober
