    finish win7 installation help external drive with xubuntu

    I installed xubuntu first on the external hard drive and then windows seven. My computer is an iMac 8,1 with OSX and windows 7 the bootloader I use to boot all OS's is rEFIt for some reason I get two windows loader icons but the both load the same windows partition on my internal drive..
    I was thinking that maybe grub loader on my external drive is messing with me being able to get to the unfinished install on the same external drive. but when i launch grub loader from the rEFIt menu theres no option to launch windows seven from the external drive and if i try launching windows7(internal) i get an error the same thing with mac osx. everything works from the rEFIt menu just not grub.

    here's the process i followed to install win7 on the external drive

    Generally speaking, life is a lot simpler when you install Windows, then install Ubuntu.

    I'm not an Apple person. Did you set up the computer to boot from the external drive?
