    Dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu

    If not with dual boot, (using the Ubuntu Grub) I do not have another way to choose between Win 7 or Ubuntu when computer starts. But, basically my idea is to prepare when in 2020 Microsoft would not issue anymore security updates. By then, I would not use Win 7 to access the internet. The OS...

    Dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu

    I have a Dell desktop and I am currently running Windows 7 and I would like to install Ubuntu on separate hard drive in same computer. My question is, when I install Ubuntu, do I keep Win 7 hard drive plugged in or do I remove it. Thanks Zavier

    Uninstall W7

    I agree 100% with davehc. EasyBCD is a Vista only program so you will have problems when you delete Win 7. Zavier

    Uninstall W7

    Download and install EasyBCD 1.7.2 (that's the one I have) in Windows 7. Open EasyBCD and go to "change settings" Make XP your default OS. Click save Delete Windows 7 from boot loader. Click save. Re-boot. Will now only see one entry for XP. Now you can delete Win 7 from hard drive. zavier

    "Do you have another computer that you'd be willing to install windows 7 on?" Yes...same error. Like I said before. "My take is that CD is damaged. It's not obvious because it's looks physically perfect. I deleted the Win 7 ISO so I can't burn another CD. What I need is another copy of win 7...

    Can't load Win 7

    Thanks for replying. Let me answer one paragraph/sentence at a time. "This is the exact error message I received and once I did as suggested in my post, it began the install successfully." I would not want to format c: as you suggested. Win 7 was in disk 3 partition 2 (now label "J") and was...

    Reghakr: While in Vista on the Computer Management window I right click on Disk 3 the no label partition and formatted it. Then gave it a letter which is now "J". Now I can see "J" in Explorer...great. Now I loaded the Win 7 CD, rebooted and started to load the program. As before, no more...

I wish I could...
