I've tried to install windows 7 32 bit with wine 4.0 rc5.

I've attached my result.

Is that error message something that i need to fix? or is it a bug a that i need to report? or something else

Thank you for all comments

You are not supposed to install Windows with Wine. If you really want to install Windows, you need to use VirtualBox instead.

With Wine it is possible to run many Windows applications and games (without installing Windows). If you install with Wine some Windows application or game and it does not work, then this would be a bug you may want to report (after searching existing bug reports for similar issues).

I recommend you to delete your Wine prefix by running "rm -rf ~/.wine" in console (assuming you do not have yet anything important in it) because it is possible it was messed up by your attempt to install Windows in Wine. Then if you need to run particular Windows application with Wine (or game) - try to install it normally.
