View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual boot reinstall

January 16th, 2009, 01:51 PM
Hi folks,

I currently have Ubuntu and Windoze XP in a dual boot configuration. I want to reinstall windoze with Windoze 7. I am set to boot from the DVD drive and the light on the drive flashes and the PC pauses as if it's ready to start the installation but then the boot screen appears like normal. It's as if the ubuntu boot menu is overwriting the dvd install.

Does anyone know how I can overcome this please? I don't to loose my Ubuntu install, just reinstall windoze.

Thanks! :)

This might indicate that something is wrong with the dvd.
Did you burn it as iso and verificate the md5checksum?

I did burn it as an iso but didn't perform the checksum verification.

I'll attempt to install it on my laptop which is only XP so I will see if the disc will start the installation.
