I want to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 in my laptop. It's an i3 processor with Windows 7 - 64 bit already installed. Please guide me as to what to do...

What about this ? i.stack.imgur.com/zTEOW.png –  Shiki Apr 25 '13 at 8:28
Make sure you have enough space on the hard drive, read everything that appears on the screen, make sure you go to "try ubuntu" option and just see if everything works ( sound, wifi, wired Internet, graphics ). I rushed into my first installation and was lucky that with 18 gb of space everything worked and without bugs. But now I know it was kinda hasty. Spend extra time preparing , it's worth it –  Serg Feb 16 at 13:06

Just download the newest image from Ubuntu.com. Use LiLi to create a bootable USB drive or burn the image to a disc. Boot from the created medium and follow the instructions. The installer will ask you if you want to install Ubuntu alongside Windows, just use this option.

I prefer "Linux 1 2 3" > pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3 –  Shiki Apr 25 '13 at 10:13

I would better suggest, use Universal USB Installer (UUI). Download it from HERE

If you have an .iso file of ubuntu, go with the procedure described in the linked page. Reboot system, boot from pen drive and there is your ubuntu live from the disk. Now click on the install and choose along with windows. This will install the Ubuntu along with the windows you are using.
