I currently have ubuntu 8.1 and for the sole purpose of playing games want to load W7 . How do i do it ?
I am prepared to format my entire hard drive

If you have downloaded the win 7 iso you can run it in virtualbox within ubuntu. It runs quite fast. Obviously not as fast as a native hard drive install but ok for testing.

^^First Google result for query 'Ubuntu dual boot Windows 7'

I did the above method and things worked wonderfully. Let us know if you have any questions.
