Re: message @ install with usb install

ajcardiac : Thanks, I know about the ext4 not being read by windows. I chose the install linux along side windows . I did not do a thing with partitioning. So this was all done by the install . You have created the Linux Partitions. However, you have installed Linux Grub Bootloader to partition /sda...

Re: message @ install with usb install

ajcardiac: It looks like you did not install the Linux GRUB2 Bootloader to /dev/sda you have installed it to /dev/sda7 Do you mean i installed it to the wrong partition or do you mean that i should have installed it to both partitions? Personally, I'd just use EasyBCD v2.2 to add a Boot entry for Li...

Re: message @ install with usb install

Yes Penn:
I will do this that you mentioned in your last post ...... I'm wondering if shrinking the windows drive slows it down ? in My opinion windows is already slow.
BTW thanks for reposting. I was wondering if i was frustrating you and others ....

thanks,
Nate
