Dual booted Ubuntu 12.04 with Windows 7. Question about boot order and where exactly Ubuntu has been installed

view story

http://askubuntu.com – This is a bit of a 2 parter: I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my Windows 7 PC. I had initially created some free space through diskmgmt.msc for Ubuntu to be installed to. I never formatted it, but it was left as ~30GB free space. When it installed I never actually got to pick where to install it to, it just installed. Now diskmgmt.msc shows that the ~30GB free space is now 2 Primary Partitions, 21GB and ~8GB. I would provide a screen shot, but new users cannot do this. The primary partitions however, seem to be totally empty. My question is, did Ubuntu install itself here? If so, w (HowTos)
