Re: Will dual-booting Windows Vista Premium with Ubuntu 9.04 cause problems?
When you set up your partitions, remember this. Ubuntu can read and write to NTFS drives out of the box, but Windows cannot read or write to Ext drives out of the box. So you might want to give Windows more than 15 GB since it can be shared between what you do in Windows and Linux.
If Vista is already installed first, there won't be any problem at all. It's only when Linux is installed first and then you try to install Vista that you run into that kind of trouble. Even then, it can be fixed.

But generally, there shouldn't be any trouble at all with a normal dual boot setup.
