How can I install Windows 7 after I've installed Ubuntu?
I just wanted to ask a few questions before I completely destroy my system.
My system currently has Ubuntu12.04 on it, I have 100GB of unallocated space where the plan is to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 for Dual-Boot purposes.
How can I be sure that when I re-boot into the windows CD, the correct partition is chosen? And Ubuntu partition is safe/ wont be overwritten?
Would this be the correct way of doing it?:
- Create a free partition with GParted
- Install Windows and Reboot into UbuntuCD live session
- Install and Run Boot-Repair
- Boot Again, Grub will display Windows and Ubuntu.
It seems a little straight forward, am I missing something? What are the common mistakes people make and is there anything I should watch out for?
Also after reading around, I find there is more than one way of achieving this.
I read somewhere that you can also take the Windows ISO and put it into the boot folder? Then somehow configuring GRUB options…
Any suggestions and advice is strongly appreciated!
