Windows 7: Can't get passed "Boot from CD"

07 Sep 2009   #31
Christopher

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit / Ubuntu 10.04
 
 

You're right, I am heavily frustrated with myself for not thinking before I hit "Next" ...

I just wanted to know if anyone knew a way "around" my situation. I am going to put the old drive in, install Windows 7 on it. View the main drive and copy over the appropriate files I need to the second partition and then reinstall Windows 7 on the main drive.

I suppose the bright side is that it gives me a good reason to upgrade to 64-Bit.

Thanks for your help everyone, sorry for being frustrated!
