installing Linux inside win7

Win7 seems to be a bit greedy/domineering.

I just tried to install Kubuntu 10.04, LinuxMint 10, and, Ubuntu 10.10 inside win7.

In all 3 cases. When I select Linux at boot, I get the message :-

Try (hd,0) : NTFS5 : wubildr _

I tried installing DAEMON TOOLS as advised somewhere on the net.

But, all to no avail.

Has anybody else had this problem?

Hmmm I dunno about that.Might I ask why you want to install it inside windows? why not just setup a dual boot?

there are several good reasons to setup inside of windwows, not the least getting rid and fixing the boot of it is a whole lot easier and you can still dual boot. I have done it myself in the past just to see how it works.

are you still able to boot to windows? did you let ubuntu to decide its own partition or is it on its own drive.

anyway there is a fix in the following - see if it helps you

Thank you all for the help.

I just gave the whole idea away and switched back over to twin-drive / dual-boot.

That way I boot into Ubuntu by default, which is better anyway.

I really only use windows to work with programs that don't run properly through Ubuntu and/or Wine.

Things like my printer. Which prints good through Ubuntu but will not scan through Ubuntu.
Or DesignCAD (It does run through Wine) but can't access outside of Wine for saving work.
They are both necessities.

Ubuntu is much nicer for working and playing in though.

All I need to do now is work out how to access linux partitions from win7.
