There is no problem, just install windows and then Linux otherwise Microsoft evil products tend to erase the boot partition in order to cripple other operating systems from booting.

There won't be any problem as far as Windows and Linux, but this is a fairly involved procedure.You'll first need to create a Windows partition on your hard disk in NTFS file system format. Otherwise,Windows might overwrite / erase your linux installation when Windows 7 installs.
make the windows partition the "Primary" or "Boot" partition.
When Windows 7 installs, it may ask if you want to delete the linux partition.Answer "NO" to this.
The next concern is which operating system will boot by default,Windows or Linux.
I had no problem doing this with Windows Vista, and whe Vista booted,it listed a choice of operating systems to boot,and I would select either Windows Vista or Ubuntu Linux.

I BROUGHT NEW ACER 4738 NOTEBOOK PREINSTALLED WITH LINUX .I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOWS 7 ORIGINAL .HOW TO REMOVE LINUX OS TO REINSTALL WIN 7


You don't need to do anything special, when you load Windows 7 you'll get to a point where you'll see this screen.

Just delete all disks and Win 7 will format everything correctly for you.

Hope this info helps!

How do i reset the password when i dont know the original pw?


A password is required to install anything on Linux, in order to prevent any malware or unauthorized users from doing harm. In order to install the program you wish, you will need to enter your password, which is the password you used to log in to Linux. I am assuming your account has sufficient privileges. If you set up an administrator, root, or su (superuser) password when you first booted up Linux, enter that password.

Downloading skype onto my acer aspire one netbook


For aspire one you need to download the Fedora 7 package from the Skype Website.

Afterwards, just do what your aspire asks you to do. When everything is installed, just press alt+F2, type in "skype", en press "Run". Skype will start up. That's it
