Hey,

Just bought a new Galago Pro.
It's dual booting Linux Mint 16 and W7.
After selecting W7 in the GRUB2 bootloader W is running, but gives no screen.
If i close the screen and it comes back from hibernation, i have to reselect w7 in GRUB2 and sometimes it works fine. I kind off have to be lucky...
I use w7 for professional audio software, isolated from internet.
I did do the necessary updates though with ethernet cable allready.
Linux i use for all my other applications, internet, etc...and this works perfect.
I like this set up a lot, but apparently it's not so easy....
Here is my partition info, i'm guessing there is something wrong here, but i'm no expert...
I ran out off ideas....
