http://ubuntuforums.org – i just bought windows 7 (i know, you all hate me) and im trying to install it from my laptop running ubuntu 9.04 linux. when i get to the install stage i get the message "windows setup cannot find a location to install temporary files". i believe this is because my hard drive partition is not in NTFS format, therefore windows cannot attach its files to it. so my question is, how do i remove ubuntu AND make my hard drive NTFS format. i plan on removing ubuntu and performing a clean install of win7, i just need a format that is NTFS first!! i think you can maybe do this with gparted, but im not sure. thx!
