Installation Can't change boot directory.

When I try installing windows 7, it gets to the end and says that it can't change boot files, so the installation cannot continue.

Hey lcollier93,

Could you let me know a few things? Are you doing an upgrade, or a clean install?

Have you clicked custom install, clicked drive options, formatted the drive you're installing to, and then installed?

Also, I think that Ubuntu dual boot can cause issues with the Windows 7 install.
