Hi guys :D
I have a windows 7 touchscreen tablet and I would like an ubuntu partition. The issue is that the bootloader that comes with windows 7 doesn't support touchscreen input so i will not be able to select which OS to boot into.
I understand that the windows 8 Developer preview uses a bootloader that works with touchscreens, so my question.
Is it possible to use the windows 8 bootloader without using the OS to select between a win 7 and ubuntu partition and if it is possible, will it cause problems?

Have you tried the grub2 bootloader used by Ubuntu? It may work with the touchscreen, but not having such a device I cannot say for sure. The grub2 bootloader will certainly support booting from either your Windows or Ubuntu partions.
