You will have boot issues putting Windows and Linux and a single HDD, unless you really know what you are doing.
Oh! I'm lucky man as it's successfully since I tried to install Ubuntu as I said previous post and now I go here to post my thanks to all you but I see your post 2 days ago. Appreciated for your advice BFK.

All I did is follow step by step in that url without any issues, now I'm studying a new OS -Ubuntu and its free applications... So happy!

P.S I had a singer HD and W7 & U is the same system drive.
