I'm trying to install Win7 on my Bonobo extreme per the instructions on the knowledge76 site: http://knowledge76.com/index.php/Win...stem76_Machine
I get as far as the step "Make sure that the new partition is selected. then click Next." but the Windows installer says "Windows cannot be installed to Disk 0 Partition 3. (Show details) --> Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style".
I spent about three hours googling around. I tried to follow the directions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1856987&page=3, which purports to allow you to convert the desired windows partition to MBR but Windows 7 refuses to install to it.
I've even contemplated wiping the drive, installing Windows and adding Ubuntu back as the second OS, but Windows doesn't even give me the option to do that.
I'm not excited about virtualization, unless it's a last resort (because part of what I want Win7 for is for games that don't play nice with virtualization).
I am using the 64-bit version of the installer. I have tried enabling the UEFI, which resulted in not being able to boot the Windows install disk at all.
Am I doing something basic/silly that is wrong (apart from using Windows at all)? A practical solution would be very much appreciated.
