View Full Version : [ubuntu] dual boot vista and ubuntu

So I'm about to rebuilt my machine and dual boot Vista Enterprise x64 and Ubuntu 8.04 x64 - which should I install first?

Install Vista first. Then Ubuntu. If you do it the other way round, you will have to play with restoring the grub boot loader.

See here for a guide:

Its better to go with installing Vista first like Michael said.

That's how i did it the first time around installing ubuntu... but since I'm doing a complete wipe this time thought I'd check to make sure. thanks!
