Installing as dual boot with windows

view full story

http://www.ubuntux.org – I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu. I've installed 8.10 before as a dual boot on my machine (Windows XP3) on a 120Gb USB hard disk. My system is set up as : First Hard drive, partitioned to give C: (on which I put Windows XP) D: all my data. 2nd Hard drive: E: a 120Gb usb hard drive, partitioned half and half to give space for backups and for Ubuntu. I had a Windows crash a week ago, had to reinstall Windows on Drive C and although the previous version of Ubuntu still existed on the 120 Gb usb drive, I couldn't get the option to boot into it at startup time. I therefore decided to reinstall Ubuntu (9.04), so I used Aesus partitioner to clean off the old 8.10 version. read more (Distributions)
