Hi new member here. Just got Ubuntu up and running on my desktop but I have a problem with my laptop.

It says that I'm running multiple OS's but all I have is Win7. It won't let me install without erasing all my data.
I'm sure I'm just being stupid but any help would be useful. Thanks!

Matt

I assume maybe do "Something Else" and repartition it myself?

Useful guide here:

and please scroll down to "Graphical Installation 'B'.
- Windows and Ubuntu installed dual boot in the same hard disk
- use the Ubuntu Live CD's installer's inbuilt partitioner for 'Manual Partitioning' during the installation without moving the Windows7 or Vista partition
