i have windows 7 installed and applied some DAZ magic. Will installing ubuntu inactivate 7?
Will you also install grub? Maybe you can edit the grub.conf/menu.lst so it still boots the loader first but to be honest I'm not sure. You'll have to ask Daz himself.
This might help :
Just install it. Everything will be okay. Unless you remove Ubuntu. Then you have to write a new boot- and mbrsector with the commands Bootrec.exe/FixMbr and Bootrec.exe/FixBoot (using Win7 dvd). After that you have to patch Win7 again.
But hé, why should you remove (K)Ubuntu ? Have fun !!!
the Ubuntu installer may not reconize the Windows install with the bootsector
pointing to a randomly generated filename. If editing /boot/grub/grub.cfg
to add a menu entrie for your Windows install is not something you want
to tackle then just uninstall the loader install Ubuntu then reinstall the loader.
also kernel updates might be a problem.
you should have a look at this post, it may be less trouble in the long run
