I found win32-loader unistaller in C:\Programmi\ (I have the italian
version of Win7), I used it but it gave an errore (Cannot execute
C:\Windows\system\bcdedit.exe), rebooting I still see the "continue
installation" prompt at Win7 boot time, so I think this is a bug. I'll
report it ASAP.

I don't know if this could be a problem, I don't think so, but after
installing Debian I boot my Win7 as a virtual machine using virtualbox. 

Thanks for your help.
