Windows 7: Question about partitions!

16 May 2010   #11

OEM version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Thanks for the Reply i been using it from the Wubi installer. In which i am happy =D. Also, i was a little confused with that tutorial you linked did they make a partition on windows first then repartition it with the Ubuntu Installer ? Im just confused cause some people i read about just make say a 50 gig partition through windows then restart in to boot loader load up the Ubuntu disk and install it onto that single partition.. But, I don't wanna mess up my boot loader as wubi works fine except for its 30 gig limit.
