Windows 7: new windows 7

16 Mar 2015   #11

W7 32 bit, Linux Mint Xfce 18 64 bit

Thrashzone is 100% correct, I had that done as well, tell I used diskpart to change or activate the partition windows is going to be installed on. Then, I had to restart the installation.

I am not very good at explaining, someone needs to tell him how to activate the partition using diskpart.
