I recently replaced Windows 7 Pro with Ubuntu 13.04. I did not partition the drives to install Windows on, because I do not know how. I did the full installation of Ubuntu, meaning I did not install alongside Windows. I still have my Windows 7 Pro dis. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

You have to have a NTFS formatted primary (sda1 thru sda4) partition with the boot flag.
