Yeah, I am testing out Windows 7, because I enjoy testing new things out.

One of the irks was that I had delete all the partitions I had in order to install this spoiled child. Creating a partition in free space of 100GB of a 200GB drive (50GB was used for Linux, and another for another installation of Windows) would yield nothing but errors.
