January 24th, 2009, 07:37 PM

I have installed Ubuntu Intrepid on my toshiba satellite laptop.

I left about two third of the harddrive unpartioned. Can I install vista from the recovery CD next to Ubuntu, or do I have to remove Ubuntu first, install vista and then make a partition for ubunto?

In that case how do y remove ubuntu?

Really like the program a lot but it is gonna cost me a lot of time to get everything to work.

All help apreaciated

Intalling Vista first would be easier. Vista boot loader is difficult. Windows goes best in sda1. Install Ubuntu last

start vista installer and opt to delete entire partiton, and make a clean start (backup first!!!). Install vista (i don't know why you have to ;)) on one partition, and leave another partition on which to install ubuntu.

im sorry, im verryyy knew to ubuntu, and i need to go back to vista.

it auotmatically starts ubuntu.
i have no idea what im doing.
annny help would be appreciated.

Go into BIOS and make CD drive first in boot order (hit 'Del' at POST)
