that's not relevant - it doesn't matter what OS is on the HDD, when you're not booting it.

Does your notebook have one of these awkward wide displays? I heard severeal times that some display drivers have problems if the aspect ratio is not the usual 4:3. You might try to connect an external monitor, though. At least during setup.
