    Thanks but how do we setup partitions? Is there any easy graphical user interface or step by step guide?

    First backup at least all your personal data (documents, photos etc) and Windows. Editing partitions is risky.

    Next you need to find out what kind of boot system you have, old-time BIOS or UEFI. If BIOS it is straightforward, just let the installer do the job. if UEFI other guys at the Ubuntu Forums know better what to do.

    You can use gparted, which is part of your Ubuntu 12.04 install CD/DVD/USB drive. Decide how big RAM should be and let the rest of the available space be the root partition (with the file system ext4).
