Install Pinguy alongside Windows?
« on: September 28, 2010, 06:14:06 pm »
When I was using ubuntu, which had many issues, it allowed me to install inside windows using Wubi. Pinguy OS, while AWESOME, does not let me do that. When I install it on a partition I can choose between windows or linux, but when I choose windows it does a disk check and then starts windows. When I reboot it tells me "no module found, press any key to abort"

Can anyone shed any light on this?

The disc check Windows runs is because you resized it's hardrive.

Is it Windows or Grub that is telling you "no module found"? Can you boot into Windows and/or Pinguy at the moment?

Grub was telling me no module found. I ended up formatting the harddrive (After booting linux from a flash drive and backing up all my files) and just installing Pinguy OS.  Everything is working better on the full install then it was on the partial install I did previously. My kudos to pinguy, this is amazing and I've had four of my friends start using it as well.
