I'm referring to two dual-booting threads started earlier.
Here is the thread of case #1:
where three partitions are shown. (copied out as I hadn't sussed windows screengrabs at the time).
In a nutshell, I settled on Wubi, on which I had a few issues, described here, case #2:
The latest is that I now want to do Proper Dual-booting on this machine. Using Windows computer Management to shrink the partitions, I was astonished to find that two partitions appear to have gone, as in the attachment at the end of the post.
So I'm curious as to where the attachments have "Gone". My guess is that the other two (mentioned in first thread) were residuals or something, left for reverting to a previous windows OS, programmed to be removed after a certain length of time. Certainly it seems typical of Windows just to remove entire partitions without the owner's awareneness or permision. Or is this just bias or a flight of fancy?
Any comments welcome.
Also any more tips on "Proper" Dual Booting Ubiuntu with Win-7 as opposed to using Wubi (which is just really meant to be a testing OS, nice though it is)
