    I cannot say I have *never* had a Blue Screen, but no, I do not recall the last time I had one and neither do I recall ever having an unexpected reboot.

    My comment about not being able to add a desktop was only an aside related to having installed the Ubuntu server and then having only a command line after I had booted it.

    What is on my computer where does not make any difference at all as far as fixing whatever Win7 has broken is concerned. That would only be relevant if Win7's boot was broken and someone was trying...
