view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I'm having issues with booting linux through Windows 7 bootloader. When I select linux I'm presented with a black screen, GRUB in the top corner, a blinking cursor and a frozen computer.I followed the instructions from the wiki page Windows and Arch Dual Boot and installed GRUB following those instructions Install to partition or partitionless disk from the GRUB wiki page.I was allowed to test linux on my work computer and I plan on installing Windows 7 in a VM but I still need the original Win installation to fall back on and for my backup to use my computer when I'm on vacatio (HowTos)
