Dual Boot BackTrack And Windows7

NOTE: The following method of installation is the simplest available. We have made it in the assumption that you have a Windows installation that is taking up all the space on your disk drive and you would like to resize and repartition the disk drive in order to allow a BackTrack install alongside your Windows.
WARNING: BACK-UP YOUR WINDOWS INSTALLATION FIRST!
  • Let’s run through the installer step by step:
  • We select our language, in this case English and then click the Forward button.

  • After the reboot, you can log in with the default username root and password toor. Do not forget to change this default root password by issuing the passwd command.
  • As you can see the splash screen disappeared after the reboot. In order to fix it just run fix-splash, and the splash screen will appear on the next boot.
