Ubuntu – Dual booting Ubuntu on Windows 7 from E:// drive


Possible Duplicate:
How can I install Ubuntu without removing Windows?

I am planning on installing Ubuntu 12 on top of Windows 7 as a dual-bootable system. I have completely emptied the E:// drive, equaling to almost 80 GB of free space. I want to install Ubuntu on this drive (thus leaving only the C:// and F:// drives for Windows). With reference to this article, can anyone tell me which stage would let me choose the E:// drive as the space where I want to install Ubuntu?

See this answer: https://askubuntu.com/a/92066/5538

Choose Install ubuntu alongside windows.

Image in step #5 shows that you can select the drive.

It won't be labeled as "E:", but if you know the type and size of your disk/partition, you can surely identify it.

There might be an option to choose "Entire partition" or "Entire disk", as seen here: https://askubuntu.com/a/92066/5538

ubuntu install ubuntu alongside windows -- entire partition or entire disk
