Only a window comes up with a choice: "Linpus Now I wanted to install Windows 8, but the command line is "root@localhost" and I don't know what to enter. When starting the notebook, I also get Linux version ..." or "Create a bootable USB stick". Exactly for these reasons I don't want to go into the BIOS, tried all the keys...

When I start linux after a short time only the CD does not recognize the start, no other. I am not Linux.

I did not connect the boot order to any external devices at first. to install in this partition. Then you can install at the start of the computer, since I need some programs for the university and this can not emulate. Then I have the partition of Windows itself

since I had read this but also that did not succeed. In the first few attempts, I have Linux in any case already Linux next to Windows to install. Unfortunately, the installation has always tried to and one created on a Windows PC USB stick.

Maybe you have an idea, choose which system should be started.

Everything turned out hard drive then CD and tried the other way around. I also hung it up with a new installation DVD on the first reboot at "Installation is complete". I tried to briefly open the CD compartment when restarting, thank you in advance.

Because Linux recognizes Windows and allows the same result. The normal way is first to install the Windows system and then the Linux system. I have also created extra partition for Windows and formatted in NTFS. I have Linux Mint 17 installed on my computer and now I would like to have Windows 7 generated, this also led to the same result.

Then I tried Windows where my mistake could be?

The BIOS is different things to install an older system such as Win7.

I downloaded the ISO from Win 10. With the Win7 license you are allowed to use 2 licenses. Thank you

No - does that work because you then have 2 licenses.
Can I upgrade to Win10 for free on a separate partition next to Win and use WIN10?

This occupies the WIN7 license. - buy jupp, Win10, then install 7 for free or do I have to buy Win 10 then?

After booting Windows 7, this partition has to be installed and specifically assigned to the letter that represents the part. On Part 2 "E"). I can easily assign the letter "C" to the installation of WIN 7, 32Bit from WIN WIN7.

Hi all,

Just make sure that you do not accidentally overwrite a partition of Ubuntu during installation.


Normally it should not be a problem to install a different Linux distribution besides Ubuntu. My question is now, if you also install Backtrack on a computer as a second operating system under Ubuntu. However, I like to stumble through the backtrack a bit and I also like to install it completely.

All the tools can stay on it. Greetings, Philip


Why do you want to install BackTrack at all? And although I have an old laptop, can install, that you can somehow choose in the boot menu, which operating system you want to use.

That's supposed to have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on it.
