Resize partition with GParted
How to install Windows 7 after Ubuntu and dual boot?

How should I create a partition in GParted so I can install Windows Vista/8 on it?

I would really like to put Windows alone or Dual-Boot (I would be so grateful for Dual-Boot since I love Ubuntu , But I need Windows at the same time!)

Here is the explanation , I have a 220 GB Hard Drive on , I want to resize it to 100 GB , Then the rest as a new partition , How do I do that? LiveUSB? GParted?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
You click on the unallocated space, and choose new partition. That seems so simple it can't really be what you are asking, so try updating your question. –  psusi Nov 12 '12 at 0:03

If you haven't any empty/unneded disk partition, you should resize one of your partitions with gParted.This operation must expand unallocated area on your HDD.Then create new partition in Windows Installer.Because if you create a partition in Ubuntu, Windows installer can makes waves, even you format this partition ntfs.

If you have a empty/unneded disk partition, you should delete this partition and then create new partition in Windows Installer.

You can do it with Gparted.Right-click to your partition and click to Resize.Don't forget that your disk must have 120GB empty space. –  Hckr Nov 12 '12 at 13:00
