Hi gregrocker,

No the boot flag isn't color coded in GParted, but there is a flags column and the word "boot" is on the XP partition. Sorry that capture is so dark I did it with my digital camera...

That should do it!

gregrocker,

Will your method give the the 'system reserved space' in disk management as if I had installed 7 by itself? I assume that running the installer multiple times will create it and take...

Yes I understand that. But the problem is that GParted doesn't see any of the ntfs partitions and it should do. If I could see the partition I'd simply format it to ext4 and I'd be good to go.
