I am trying to install Windows 7 in a dual boot configuration on a PC that's already running Ubuntu 8.04.
Windows 7 is kind enough to refuse installing very early in the process, issuing the following error message:
Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition
Update: I found this thread describing a struggle with a similar issue. The "solution" there was to disconnect all drives except for the one on which Windows 7 is to be installed. This does not work for me!
Any idea how to solve this problem without wiping clean my Ubuntu installation?
