My C Hard drive is a simple volume and will not split.
Wondering if i can format or change my C drive to a primary partition (so it will split) or if i can install ubuntu straight onto my C Drive and keep Windows 7.

Go to computer management. Right right click on the partition, and choose shrink. That will let you make room on your drive.
You will then get a box asking you how much space you want to shrink. Choose the amount that you like, and click on Shrink.
