How often do you do this?

Code:
 
diskpart
sel disk 0
clean
exit
And all is gone!!
So what's the real problem?

If you make the iso's yourself with mkisofs - you may need to defrag them.

Kaktussoft, I'm pretty sure that doesn't touch the MBR or boot sector. It just deletes the partition.

MBR is the FIRST 512 bytes of the disk! It contains:
  • disk signature. Not that important for this problem
  • partition table. All partitions are gone.
  • master boot code. Code that normally does: Find active primary partition. Load its volume boot sector and run it.
Code:
 
diskpart
sel disk 0
clean
Clean command writes 0's to first 1 MB of physical disk. Please explain how a virus, worm or rootkit could survive.

Ah, didn't realize it wiped the MBR.

Now, the grub4dos stuff is really only for flash drives, I can't figure out how to make a bootable CD ISO using it. I did get a flash drive to have all 3 images including Windows 7 successfully.

I have in the past Dual-Booted Linux and 7/xp/vista. What i did was simply download an Ubuntu ISO which also comes with a free GRUB Boot Loader. When installing the OS it should show a partition manager where you can specify how much space you wish to use for Linux and for Windows 7 (Don't worry you can access your windows 7 files from Linux).

Completing that the boot loader will show allowing you to select which OS you wish to use. If you are unhappy using this method may I recommend a virtual PC to run Linux off of.
