multiboot XP, 7,8 , linux .eliminate that frustation .
This is the first time since 2011 that Windows has made it onto my primary computer, not counting virtual machines. Alas, I desire to play some games not available on Linux.
After XP, nothing. I need no computers anymore, android toys will be enough.
Then it became clear that there's no easy way to begin installing because, as the Windows installer complained, the harddrive of the machine was "partitioned GPT style". (The machine in question had had Ubuntu at first.) For a change I booted to Linux on the machine and tried things with GParted, but the Windows installer remained complaining all the same. It was time to look up on the net what GPT means and how to get past it.
Windows is an unusable POS. That aside, the speed difference with Windows on the SSD is staggering. It almost seems usable, once you finally get it to work.
In the end the only way I could get it to work was by simply copying the whole MBR and partition table from the HDD that housed Windows.
On Linux I can just juggle my partitions and partition tables about however I like. Windows is a stupid, annoying little crybaby.
It's just that you were not properly on topic. This is Windows Frustration Thread.
Does ensbb3 ever reboot his machine?
I've always considered two partitions a must for Windows.
