    Error When Trying to Install Windows 7

    Running Ubuntu 12.04 in KDE mode successfully on a Compaq Presario CQ58 laptop.

    Installed Virtualbox but when trying to install Windows 7, I get a 'Windows failed to start' message. Picture attached showing full message.

    The hard disk was completely wiped, leaving nothing but one partition. Ubuntu didn't have any objections to using the entire hard disk.

    I got the same message before I installed Ubuntu. I tried to do a fresh install of Windows 7 in preparation for a dual-boot situation with Ubuntu. This worked before I decided to obliterate all partitions.

    In the world of Windows, do you need to have some sort of extra partition?
