I have one of the 9" Acer Aspire One netbooks from when they first came out.. Love it, cool, whatever. I tried the Windows 7 RC when it was available and loved it more. Have since reformatted to XP (I messed it up, long story...)
So here's where I'm at: I have a Windows 7 Pro *upgrade* from the win741.com site. You know, the one where students could get an upgrade to 7 for $30? So I can handle that much.. Burn the ISO, boot from disc and do clean install (only option while upgrading from XP to 7).
BUT... I also have Ubuntu Netbook Remix on it. So there is some grub loader at the beginning, when I start it up. I have wiped the Linux partitions before when I had 7 RC, and then it wouldn't startup at all until I reinstalled UNR. Whatever, no biggie. But I never use Linux anymore and I wanted to get rid of it completely, and I'm finding mixed answers all over the web..
Can I do the fixmbr command from an upgrade disc when I go to install 7? Or do I need some full copy of windows for that..? I'm really not sure how to get rid of Linux, or the grub loader... Does anyone have a definite answer?
