The Elitebook 8770w seem to support UEFI based booting, that's what I
can tell from the boot menu. But I am not 100%.
When previously running SLED and Windows on separate partitions but on 1
SSD it has worked fine and appeared in SLED's typical boot menu with
SUSE/Failsafe/Win7.
OS: SLED 11 SP2 11.2.2-1.193

Please have a look at the attached screen shot for partition information
if this is of any help.

Many thanks

Hi
OK, so you can edit the grub configuration to add windows via the
chainloader and can use YaST partitioner to add the windows C as a
mount point.

For grub, you need to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file or add the
entry via YaST bootloader;

Code:
###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name:
windows###
title Windows 7
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1
For the windows partition, use YaST partitioner and select sda2 and
edit, on the right in mount point, type in;
Code:
/windows/C
Don't format either

If manually, you would add an entry in /etc/fstab with;
Code:
/dev/sda2            /windows/C           ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
You would also need to create the mount point;
Code:
mkdir -p /windows/C
