So i went out and brought an HP DV6 laptop.
The laptop came pre-installed with windows 7 Home premium.
The laptop had several partitions.
system partition which appears to be a boot loader only.
Windows partition with, as you can guess the windows install.
Recovery partition, which is used to run recovery if windows fails.
HPTools partition, which im not sure what that is.
So, When I got the laptop I shrunk the
windows partition as much as I could, and then created an empty partition using the unused space (using the windows partition manager).
I then installed ubuntu 11.04 using the live CD into the new partition.
ubuntu works fine, and in the boot loader I have
memory test (again),
Windows 7 (Loader),
Windows 7 (Loader).
If I choose the first
Windows 7 (Loader) Windows starts to load, The boot animation gets to a certian point, then it gets the BSOD.
If I choose the second
Windows 7 (Loader) I get told that windows failed to load as it does not have permission to access the drive.
I then get the option to Run windows repair.
But when I choose this option I simply get the grub loader.
How can I fix this?
