I have Windows 7 installed on my PC. Now I need to install Ubuntu as a second OS. I googled the same and got some sites that give the option of installing either by downloading Ubuntu, making a CD and creating customized partition OR by downloading
The WUBI way is pretty simple and I wish to go that way but the links (here) suggest that the installation drive should be C Drive. Is that mandatory? What if I consider some other drive as installation drive (say E drive)?
If the answer to above questions is YES, do I need to backup that drive? Also, if the installation size is 8 GB, for e.g. than would that drive be partitioned? Or just a folder would be created?
