[ubuntu] Dual Booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I currently am running Windows 7 and would like to be able to have the option of selecting either Windows 7 or Ubuntu 12.04 when I boot up my PC. My hard drive came partitioned with C: as my "OS" drive and also D: as "data" which I have nothing on (240 GB wasted). I would like to take my D: drive and use that for the Ubuntu 12.04 install. I have looked at WUBI but I understand that it is generally not advisable to use long term so I am settling on going with two separate physical partitions, each dedicated to an OS. There is some confusion on my part as to the best way (Hardware)
