Re: dual boot w/win7

older desktops usually suffer that problem of reading burnt dvds.if u wanna dual boot,i suggest fresh installs of both,do a win7 install first and partition it to the space you want,then,install your linux to the remainder.grub 2 will create a boot menu so you can choose either win7 or linux
