    Re: [ubuntu] Windows 7 Dual boot installation 12.04 LTS

    These are the results of when I try to use FixParts. Its says it is deleting the partition (sda4 which you were talking about). However, I don't want to make these changes yet because I haven't backed up anything. How do you back up the partition table to another device?

    C:\Users\...\Desktop>fixparts 0:
    FixParts 0.8.4


    Loading MBR data from 0:


    Problem: MBR partitions 3 and 4 overlap!
    Warning: Deleting oversized partition #4! Start = 1464936448, length = 223682


    MBR command (? for help): ?
    a toggle the active/boot flag
    c recompute all CHS values
    l set partition as logical
    o omit partition
    p print the MBR partition table
    q quit without saving changes
    r set partition as primary
    s sort MBR partitions
    t change partition type code
    w write the MBR partition table to disk and exit

    Did you press w to write the changes.

    It says it is deleting that partition, did you back up the partition table. The instructions I posted were from Linux. Also if you had data in that partition did you back that up first also?

    Thank you! I have successfully installed Ubuntu alongside Windows 7. Windows 7 seems to be working fine, but I need to boot Ubuntu and make sure everything is working there correctly.
