This question already has an answer here:
What is recommended: installing Ubuntu in the same partition as Windows 7 - or in a separated one? Ubuntu says:
Begin the installation Depending on your previous selections, you can now verify that you have chosen the way in which you would like to install Ubuntu. The installation process will begin when you click the Install Now button. Ubuntu needs about 4.5 GB to install, so add a few extra GB to allow for your files. Not sure about this step? Windows users can use the Windows installer, which will install and uninstall Ubuntu in the same way as any other Windows application. It's simpler and completely safe.
What is the advandage (or disadvantage) of installing Ubuntu in a different partition?
Thank you or your help.
