I am a total beginner to the world of Ubuntu. I would like you people to help me on how to dual-boot 12.04 on a computer already running windows 7 Ultimate.
- dual core processor,
- 2GB RAM,
- 500GB hard disk with
- c occupying 100GB (Windows is over here),
- d having 180GB (all other stuff like movies, songs and stuff),
- e having 185GB (totally empty).
I would like to install it on
e by allocating 30GB (25 for root and 5 for swap) to it by partitioning the disk .
The problem is that when I select Something Else option it shows all the disks properly but when I select sda4 i.e. local disk
Add option does not respond. Only
Change option responds on that window.
I'm totally confused. Please help me on that. Is GParted a good option? If yes, then please elaborate. If possible please provide screen-shots of everything.
