How to Install win 7 on pear os7


So i just installed pear os7 in my laptop, just to try and i did not like, i probably would, it just takes a tame, and than i did want to install win 7
i did create a flash drive with win 7 in it, and i did format it to NTFS.
so after i set my BIOS boot option to usb drive, it says "error loading operation system"
i did not try from CD yet but only because i think it will say the same thing..

Please help anyone/im new to linux.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

This issue is not about Linux I think, the message you get is from the BIOS

Did you make your flash drive bootable?

If not type a search engine:
boot windows 7 usb stick
or something like that.

You'd be much better re-installing Windows 7 from your official Windows 7 CD as that's what it's for, rather than playing about with USB sticks. Remember that you'll need to go through the whole licence registration thing which may include phone calls and other hassle. The Windows licence key on your laptop will be required.

Play Bonny!

Maybe a bunch of Linux experts are not the best people to ask how to install Windows? If it is for educational purposes then call microsoft, they would be happy to assist you I think.
