Well I've found some issues with using software in Windows 7 to read my ext3 formatted drive. With the software enabled I'm getting random BSOD's. So I'm moving all media onto the external MyBook drive. Already had the computer shut down once moving files, I need either a new power supply or a new fan and heatsink. So that's next.

Got Windows 7 installed today, it smooth save one speed bump. I had to disconnect my other drives before the setup would continue with the installation. It kept giving me an error that setup could not create a partition, a Google search advised disconnecting other drives and that worked. So Win 7 is up and running smooth with a dual boot of Ubuntu 9.04, it actually recognized all hardware except for my printer. Having issues getting windows to recognize my ext3 formatted Linux drive, it sees the drive but in attempting to access it windows wants to format it. Currently this isn't a big issue for me, but it will be something I'll have to have functioning eventually.
