Hello Fourum
Really bad luck today. Vista corrupted and I have to reinstall it from the recovery disk. So I switched to Ubuntu that I had previously installed with wubi. Straight away I got the invitation to update. Like many others found, the update did not complete and now I've lost ubuntu too and it looks like I'm going to spend today reinstalling everything.

OK. This time round I'd like to install ubuntu so its independent of windows. How can I set up dual boot if I'm installing both OSs separately? Does Ubuntu give me that option during install?

When reinstalling ubuntu can I choose an option to preserve my data?

Thanks
