Windows 7 and Ubuntu 8.10

Asked by Mike "E" on 2009-12-20

I have a Dell Latitude 2100 netbook that came with Ubuntu 8.10 installed and I would like to install Windows 7 for my son.
Software is located on my Maxtor Onetouch mini. When I try to install Windows 7 from slecting setup.exe I get this error.
Please help this netbook is for his school. Thank You!

The forum here only concerns the version of Ubuntu that came with your netbook. Questions regarding any other OS should be directed to the vendor (Microsoft in your case).
