Yea, that'* the other thing I was going to suggest, but then it redoes all the formatting of the drive, takes 12 hours, and overall is just a large pain in the ***. Gets you thinking... I paid $15 and waited a week for this!?

What about converting over to linux as a main os, then running a windows 7 vm for when you need windows. You should have no problem installing it on a vm, and then you can run both at the same time. Ubuntu is more and more getting in the position of being able to replace Windows as a main operating system. I try to use it as much as possible and switch to my vm for things that are either too much of a pain to work with in linux or just don't work.

Haha, you didn't see my video on the previous page did you? That'* exactly what I did! I couldn't load Windows7 though because VMware is 32bit and I only have a 64bit copy of Win7 with key.
