    I suspect you are right. There is a problem with the bootmgr. Somehow the Grub was not properly installed. But the Grub can be a mess for Windows.

    I therefore suggest you install Linux on Disk1 or Disk2 - but make sure the other 2 disks are disconnected (pull the Sata or power cables) during the Linux installation. Then you can switch booting between the 2 systems with the BIOS boot order. That is the easiest and avoids all potential problems.

    Another good solution is to run Ubuntu in Virtual Box within Windows7. I do that and it runs beautifully at full speed, full screen, etc - and you can run Win7 and Ubuntu in parallel. Just make sure you install the Guest Additions. If you need help, post back.
