Windows 7: Yet another dual boot question......

Success! Well, sort of.
I am posting this from my Win7 install. Took almost two hours due to a few minor snags. I lost the boot manager so can't start Ubuntu but that's OK until 9.10 is released. Hopefully Wubi will take care of that. I did all my e-mail on Ubuntu before so that's my only problem. I'll just have to setup ThunderBird here on Win7 and try to get all my e-mails migrated to this install.

No sound. I'll have to look into that further. It's an older Creative Audigy2 so I may have to try different drivers to get something to work. Can't buy a new card right now.

Internet transfers are noticably slower but I'll probably run across some tweaks regarding that.

All in all it's the fastest version of Windows that I've played with. I'm happy that I did the install. Now it's just a matter of getting it all setup the way I want it.

Thanks for the help guys. I'm sure you'll be seeing MANY more questions/problems posted by me in the near future.

You can get most old Audigy to run by installing drivers/software in compatibility mode.

I would sure not settle for anything being slower. Clean install to formatted metal will solve that.
