View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Booting with Ubuntu and XP (Ubuntu First)

July 31st, 2009, 07:55 PM

I'm running Ubuntu atm
and i really want to play one of my old favorite game (sudden attack, not many ppl heard of it)

anyways i'm planning on running XP until maybe i dual boot windows 7

so far i have gparted downloaded
not quite sure how much XP takes but i think 30GB would be enough

after that what would i do in terms of how to install XP? (never did this before)
do i just put it on a disk or make a USB then run it like i'd normally do?
and how do i know to make it install itself on the free space and not my ubuntu space

i do not have a disk but can get one and have a USB drive available atm

any tips appretiated thx

and gparted was in synaptic so just installed that way
hopefully it's not too troublesome :P
