I merged in the posts from the other thread. Next time be a bit more vigilant, as well as using more descriptive thread titles so this doesn't happen again....

yes, right, apologies but will deleting my boot partition affect the MBR or my GRUB? (the Linux startup manger)

Your best bet is to wipe the *disk* boot to Win7 make a couple (several depending upon how you install *nix) partitions, install Win7 in the last, then install *nix. Or, you could wipe them all, create all the partitions, install *nix, then install Win 7 afterward.

The first method should allow you to use GRUB as your boot manager (after some grub.ini editing to recognize the Win7 part and boot) and the second method will let you use the Win7 boot manager to control the booting - not sure how well that works with 7 and *nix, but I have seen it working with my own eyes, so I know it is possible....

Windows XP Pro
 
 

Hello guys.

I have a similar problem. I am running a Windows XP pro 32 bit on a Asus Commando with a Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 and 2 Gb Memory.

I downloaded Windows 7 rc 64bits from the Microsoft site and burned to a DVD with PowerIso (2 times now) and tried to do a clean install. Guess what the instalation stops before it gets to the part where is supposed to choose the language (i know this because i saw the pics in the clean install tuturial). Mouse works but nothing happens its just a screen with nothing on it.

Can you guys help?

yes, this is similar to the problem I had. I am re-downloading RC from another site to try and see if it works. Good luck, and I hope you have good bandwidth.
