B131 with Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7

Hi All,

 So I've been working on a Samsung NC20, working to get a solid base working with Ubuntu 9.10 and an AT&T 3G usb modem.

I was creating the best hardware platform for a JavaFX project to run on, I'm sending the Samsung to the JavaFX team today.

  I was left with the AT&T 3G usb modem, so I thought, why not install Ubuntu on the MSI Wind.

It already had Window 7 and OpenSolaris B131 and a 40Gb fat32 partition between the two OS's, so I decided to install Ubuntu 9.10 here.

Now the MSI will boot Windows 7, Ubuntu 9.10 or OpenSolaris B131.

I may even try to get the AT&T modem working under OpenSolaris.

Latest VB mounts iTouch in Windows 7 guest

Hi All,

 So I downloaded the latest development builds for VB today, not being able to use my iPod Nano in the Windows 7 guest has been bugging me for awhile.

I still cannot mount the iPod Nano under the Windows 7 guest, but it's starting to look more like an Apple driver / Windows 7 issue than VB.

I did plug in my un jail broken 32Gb iTouch and what do you know, VB saw it passed it to Windows 7 and iTunes jumped on it.

After a whole afternoon of playing with it, I think you need to have the guest running first before plugging in the iTouch or iPhone otherwise OpenSolaris grabs it first.

I'm testing on a Nevada B129 install on my Acer C90S.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all

Windows 7 boot loader success

Hi All,

 So I have gotten the Windows 7 boot loader to work.

 With Windows 7 running I went into control panel, system, create and format hard disk partitions.

I set the Windows 7 partition as active.

On the reboot only Windows 7 comes up.

I downloaded and installed Easy BCD.

The second tab in Easy BCD allows you to create a Linux grub boot entry in the Windows 7 boot menu.

When I restart I have the Windows 7 boot menu with two entries, Windows 7 and OpenSolaris.

Selecting OpenSolaris then gives you the standard OpenSolaris grub boot menu.
