http://ubuntuforums.org – hey all, Just bought an asus n76 and managed to kill the windows 7 install the same day! there was a generous enough space on the 1st hdd (there are 2 x 1tb), but i forgot/failed to create a dedicated boot partition for linux and ended up writing linux boot partitition to windows boot partition. obviously, windows would not boot with grub, but through the bios was able to boot into the windows boot sequence. UNfortunately, i used easybcd to try to fix things and a bug in 2.1.2. ended up corrupting the mbr. Subsequent attempts to boot with the windows sequence required hard powerdowns in o (Hardware)
