I had Windows 7 32 bit on my existing system, but I am planning to install Ubuntu alongside it. So, I just decided to do a fresh installation of both the operating systems.
When I insert the Windows 7 DVD, I can create 3 partitions at maximum, with one being the one where Windows 7 will be installed.
I just wanted to know – do I need to keep some un-partitioned space for Ubuntu to install?
By "unpartitioned space" I mean the space left after creating 3 partitions for Windows 7. I have a 500 GB HDD, so the three partitions I would be creating are 120 GB, 120 GB and 120 GB. The rest is shown as some logical drive, is that unpartitioned space?
Can I install Ubuntu over there? I am pretty sure the space shown as logical won't be available as drives when I log into Windows 7.
Is that space lost or can I use that to install ubuntu?
