I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed in my PC and I want to install Windows 7 in another drive, which partially contains some data, so that I can use both OSs in a dual boot scheme.
I have read on the web of taking a backup of the data on the other drive, formatting it, and then installing Windows 7, but even then I am not really sure weather the dual boot would work. Is there any easier way of doing this without taking backup and formating?
Is there any automatic way of installing Windows 7 on the drive while keeping the files as they are (making a partition on the way)?
I will also be happy if anyone has an idea for any work around for this problem, or a link to a page describing the same problem.
