I must admit I'm a total noob in this.
I've been running ubuntu 11.10 in windows 7 using Wubi installation, and I love Ubuntu. I would like to make a full dual boot instalation of Ubuntu on my PC, because ,according to what I've read, Ubuntu on Wubi is a lot less efficient.
Can I run a full installation of Ubuntu in one partition of the hard drive and a full installation of windows 7 in another one, and still be able to run GRUB when I boot my pc? If it is possible, what is the best way to configure the hard drive partitions?
I have a 283.32 GB hard drive, I want to install windows in one partition and ubuntu in another, but also create a partition to share files between ubuntu and windows... like mp3, video, images...
