    What to do and how to manage a dual-boot Ubuntu?

    Hello, my friend had recently got interested with Ubuntu because I was supposively told Linux games where cheaper on steam. Whether or not thats true I've installed and created a partition on a NTFS hard drive. I can't seem to determine my partition for my Ubuntu system that I made. I'm using the "Disk Management" to see my partitions. I wanted to reduce my partition size. I installed Ubuntu from a disk in which I burned the Ubuntu Iso to. My partitions are:
    -System Reserved (E
    -WIN7 (C 839.28 GB NTFS
    -14.18 GB Healthy (Primary Partition)
    -69.98 GB Healthy (Primary Partition)
    -7.97 GB Healthy (Primary Partition)

    I don't remember how much memory I dedicated to my Ubuntu and non of the partitions are labeled.

    If someone could help me with this. I would appreciate the help very much. (My harddrive I partitioned is a TB)

    P.S. On the GRUB launcher how do I know which sda to run Since it shows 3 sda's for windows 7?

    You can use the Disk Utility in Ubuntu to see the partition layout. What you posted above doesn't tell much. The last three partitions could be Ubuntu related - possible root, home and swap - but that's only a guess.
    sda, or /dev/sda is the way Ubuntu designates HDD devices. Are you saying there are three of them, all designated as sda?
