hi there
I had ubuntu on my computer and I want to install win as a second OS. I know that installing win after Linux is a little tricky. As I know win rewrite the master boot partition, but I want to keep my Linux as a primary OS.

Any help

thanks a lot

you have to make a free space to windows. using Gparted from ubuntu live cd
resize ubuntu partition leaving an unallocated space.
format the new partition to ntfs format .
install windows on that partition.
reinstall grub (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows?action=show&redirect=RestoreGrub)
