Thanks for letting me into your forum, this then would be my first post.
I recently purchased a high perfomance computer which is running on Ubuntu.
I have tried it but honestly can say that I am so conditioned to the windows platform that i find Ubuntu absolutely horrendous.
Anyway, I bought Windows 7 Ultimate (contained both 32 and 64 bit versions). I want to install the 64bit version onto the gaming Pc I have bought as a present for my son.
I have also bought a new 2tb hard drive and installed it into the PC along with the existing 260gb HD which contains the Ubuntu.
Using Ubuntu disk manager i tried to format the 2TB hd but when I tried to format it it returned a message that the hd was 512kb out of line.
If I alter the bios to boot from the 2tb hd, it just tells me that it is a non bootable system disk.
Could you good people tell me the procedure for formatting a new HD ready to accept Windows 7 using ubuntu.
I also have a copy of winxp sp1, could i install that first to facilitate the the install procedure for Windows 7?.
By the way, it is the 64bit version I want to install and i dont mind losing Ubuntu at all, in fact, the sooner the better.
Thanks in anticipation
