    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Did you disable the radio when in Win7? Not with the switch, but via software? I've seen where that will set something in the system flash memory so that Linux can't turn it back on - you have to go back into Windows and re-enable the radio.

    That is a Windows application - won't work on Linux!
