I am new in the forum and I need some help with an issue. Hope you can help a noob
First, I really need dual-boot so I just can't install only linux.
I want to install Debian in a notebook using Windows 7. The notebook has already 3 partitions, two if them are for notebook recovery purposes and I don't want(for now) to delete them.
Since you know the hardware only support 4 partitions, I created , using Gparted, a fourth Extended Partition. Inside this Extended Partition I created two logical partitions, one for root(/) and the another one for swap.
The point is that I restarted the notebook and I coulnd't boot Windows 7 anymore. To make the thing boot again, I deleted the extended partition I created(using Gparted again) and rebooted. With this last procedure Windows 7 booted again.
So the question is: Why this happened and how can I accomplish this task in a safely manner?
Thanks for your help!
