    Another Failure

    Yep, same result. @Muskt: I don't see why rebooting multiple times would help. If ebcd is going to be happy with it, then it will be the first time. I did most of what you said already, except for having ebcd write to the MBR before XP is installed. But apart from that, I installed Windows 7...

    Another Failure

    Weird, I looked and there is no such file in the EasyBCD directory. There is a NeoSmart.bcd in the profiles folder though. I tried reinstalling and there is still no such file. I tried putting the file you gave me into the profile folder, but that didn't work either. Also, in the help->about...

    5 Primary partitions?

    I was under the impression that the more RAM you had, the less swap space you needed. i.e. back when 512MB was a lot, it would sometimes help performance in some games to lower the amount of virtual memory in Windows. Anyway, on to round two. This time I allocated an extended partition in...

    5 Primary partitions?

    What's a good size for the Swap partition in Ubuntu?

    5 Primary partitions?

    So is the partition limit three primaries or 4? Also, could you respond to my other, I did what you said and would really like to be able to boot to Ubuntu.

    5 Primary partitions?

    Could you recommend a better disk manager that's free? Right now because of this glitch I can't do anything with the unallocated space. I did that: It shows that I have 4 primary partitions. I thought the limit was three and an extended?

    5 Primary partitions?

    So Disk Management only allows me to create 3 primary partitions and and extended. I had three primary, and I left a lot of space unallocated. I then installed Ubuntu. Now the swap partition I created for Ubuntu is a primary, giving 4 primary partitions. On top of that, the partition for...
