Re: Ubuntu dual boot installation on HP pavilion dv7.
Yes you can do that - that's where I was going. But the erratic problems booting Ubuntu that result in you having to keep reinstalling are not normal. And there's little point running an install that lasts one or two boots.

I'd also recommend 12.04 in that case because it supports 2d unity so should run better in the vm.
