Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Used to dual boot Linux and Windows years ago. Now, I simply run my Linux boxes either natively without Windows, or as a VM within Windows. Virtual machines are a wonderful tool.

I'd put them on separate HD's if not separate machines, to avoid GRUB corruption of Win7 which can be irreparable.

If that's not possible: Dual-Boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu in Perfect Harmony
Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7
