View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu and windows

May 16th, 2008, 02:50 PM
I have hardy installed perfectly works wonders. Although i can sufficiently play games on wine I think for the moment I'd rather have a small windows partition for counterstrike and WoW. Is it wise to install windows after Ubuntu or should i wipe the drive and install windows then Ubuntu afterwards?

You can install windows and you will just have to reinstall grub after its installation. The partition of windows doesn't exist right? You should use gparted to shrink the one that hosts ubuntu instead of any other windows application

Windows shouldn't kill your Ubuntu partition (it will install itself in whatever partition you specify).
However it will overwrite your bootloader (Grub), with it's own, which will make Ubuntu unaccessible.
You can however restore your MBR from a liveCD afterwards, which should do the trick.
