Let me start off by saying that I am not very experienced with installing operating systems or knowing how they work.
I just received a new Netbook today, and Asus Eee PC. I ordered it in a deal where it only came with the Asus ExpressGate OS on it, and my windows 7 dvd was at a friends house, so I figured I'd give Ubuntu a try before I got Windows on it. So far, my Ubuntu experience has gone well, but I put the Windows 7 files on a flash drive (following this
guide) and tried to boot from the USB drive, and nothing happened. Startup took a while longer than normal and the USB drive flashed like it was trying to start up the windows installer, but then it just gave up and started Ubuntu like normal.
Does anyone know what might possibly be going on? Any help is greatly appreciated, and if you need any more information, just ask and I'll reply very soon.
