How to install Windows 7 over Linux OS

Hi ppl,

I was googling and traing for 3 days (and nights) to slove this isue but unsucessfully. I used Gpart to format hdd, change file format to ntfs, but still same problem. Do anyone has a clue what shud I do.

I would also post on a Linux forum how to add Windows to an existing Linux install. They are used to having Windows around on most machines. Not as many Windows users do Linux. But you should be able to find a HowTo or other guide Adding Windows Seven when Linux is already installed.

I believe the Windows Seven Forum can handle the request.
