    Default BackTrack5 Installation Question

    Hello,

    I am having a problem installing BackTrack5 to dual boot. I am able to boot it from a usb but when I try to install to the hard disk some weird things happen.

    1. The installer thinks I have more than one OS running on the computer. (These include Windows 7 and two Windows Vista loaders. One of which has the majority of my hard drive while Windows 7 has 1 MB. and windows 7 is the one I have installed!)
    2. I don't get the option to split the hard drive down the middle and I think this is because of the above.
    3. I can't figure out how to use the third option instead which is "Specify partitions manually (Advanced)"

    Could someone help me here? Overall goal: to be able to boot into Windows 7 and Backtrack 5 without USB preferably using GRUB.
    Thank you.

    0hWhatsH1sFace,

    Prior to posting on here, did you bother to do some research on your own? Have you at least made an attempt using a partition editor, or fdisk, etc...? Please....Please do not expect spoon fed results on here.

    I know it sounds harsh my friend, but that is how you will learn to accomplish things in *nix....by doing, and not by being fed....


    V/r,

    Pffbt..
