    EasyBCD For Windows XP?

    Interesting bug, I never noticed. As a workaround you should be able to change your boot drive in your bios and set the partition you want to install Ubuntu to as active and then just let grub install where it wants to. After install change your boot partition back to XP and run Bootpart. Mike

    Ubuntu 7.10 Final

    I think it falls back to vesa, I don't know for sure. There's supposed to be some sort of safe mode that kicks in. I know ctrl+alt+backspace worked for me. Once into the desktop the Nvidia restricted drivers can be installed. Mike
