Windows 7: oh no- updated some drivers - to HD's turned unallocated !

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1
 
 

Given recent experience with Windows disk management I would also be looking at the situation with Partition Wizard Bootable CD (well respected by forum members).

Windows has an iso burn capability built in. Double click on iso or select .iso file in windows explorer > open > Windows Disc Image Burner.

BOOT WITH UBUNTU

1. If you're using a CD: Put the Ubuntu CD into the CD/DVD-drive and restart the computer. You should see a welcome screen prompting you to choose your language and giving you the option to install Ubuntu or try it from the CD.
If you don't get this menu, read the booting From the CD guide for more information. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootFromCD


If your computer does not automatically do so, you might need to edit the BIOS settings. Restart your computer, and watch for a message telling you which key to press to enter the BIOS setup. It will usually be one of F1, F2, DEL, ESC or F10. Press this key while your computer is booting to edit your BIOS settings.

You need to edit the Boot Order. Depending on your computer, and how your USB key was formatted, you should see an entry for 'removable drive' or 'USB media'. Move this to the top of the list to force the computer to attempt to boot from USB before booting from the hard disk. Save your changes and continue.

2. Choose your preferred language and click on 'Try Ubuntu 10.10'
