This question already has an answer here:

I am attempting to install ubuntu 12.04 alongside Windows 7. I am not advanced in linux so I am a little confused. Whenever I attempt to install ubuntu from the CD, I get all the way to the point where it asks me to partition my drive. On the basic level there is a 2 sided bar that can be dragged back and forth to select how many GB you wish. My question is: Which side of the 2 bars is the ubuntu side, and which side is the Windows 7 side? There is no way to differentiate between the 2 bars. I suspect the ubuntu side is the right side, because its default setting is a lower GB amount than the left side; but I can't be sure, and I do not want to screw up my windows partition.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Well yes, normally Ubuntu should be at the smaller side. However it normally shows the OS so that you can differentiate.
