I used BootItNG to resize the NTFS partition.  There is a 7mb Fat32 
partition.  I installed Kubuntu, it booted fine but Windows would not 
boot.  Then I just tried to reset the MBR with BootItNG, which I have 
done a dozen imes before on other PC's, and it restored Windows fully, 
but not now.  Even the (F10) Restore System key doesn't work.  Has it 
now become dangerous to install Linux?
