Re: No "Install Alongside Windows" Option on Any Linux Distro
Shrink your Windows 7 partition- (about 1/2 the size)
In a previous post I saw that you have:
Take advantage of that free space when your doing your Linux install.
Highlight that free space with the up or down arrows hit enter and work from that free-space to create your Ubuntu partitions--
Manual install is best; I have found when you want to dual boot--
When you are prompted by the Ubuntu Partition Manager: it should show you all partitions on that computer-
Manually create one partition from the free space for your - Ubuntu (/) journaling file system and allocate about 20GB
Than manually create another partition for the - Swap space about 2 to 4 GB (depends on what you want)
When your done creating those partitions you should see something like "finish partitioning and write to disk"
Once you click that your done. The installer should take over; start and finish the rest of the installation and boom: your new distro will be installed--:-
I have never used G-parted; as I prefer to use what the Linux installer provides.
After doing a few manual install's you'll get the hang of it--
