View Full Version : [ubuntu] another dual-boot question

July 31st, 2008, 12:07 AM
Hello all and thanks in advance...

I have used Ubuntu before, but always on a second drive with nothing else on it. I am wanting to install Ubuntu on my laptop. It has two hard drives, Windows on C drive, and program files on D Drive. I would like to install Ubuntu on my D drive using the free space. Do I need to use a program to resize my partition under Windows to create free space or can Ubutu be installed using the free space on the D Drive. Any help would be appreciated.

XP or Vista?

You can use Gparted Live CD to repartition your drive:
Burn the iso to disk and boot from it.
