I want to have Win 7 installed alongside Ubuntu so I could play stupid games (Dragon age, to be exact). I tried using wine, vmplayer and virtual box. none worked as far as I could try (there probably are ways to make the game run properly on any of those, but I'm a real rooky at all that Ubuntu stuff...) so I wanted to just have win 7 running alongside and be done with it. From my understanding, I need to dualboot. I tried making a win 7 installation usb but my vostro won't recognise it. I don't have a cd/dvd drive, it's a 13' laptop. When I insert the usb and restart i get an "opperating system not found" massage, after that, when I click another key, ubuntu is starting. I'm using ubuntu 12.04. Any ideas?
