I have used Ubuntu 11.10 successfully for several months. Today, I am installing the 12.04 LTS upgrade. It's been a while since I set up an old Lenovo Thinkpad T60 with Ubuntu. Windows XP was formerly only the machine, but it crashed beyond repair. Therefore, as I recollect, I formatted the disk to serve only as an Ubuntu machine.
Recently, I have had the opportunity to test drive Windows 7 Professional, and I like it. My question is "Can I use GParted to repartition my drive in order that I can install Windows 7 on a portion of the drive and have a dual-boot system?" If GParted is not the preferred utility for accomplishing this task, what partition management software would you recommend?
Thanks very much for your suggestions.
