Your entire HDD will get reformatted and erased unless you select Install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 in the Ubuntu installer. –  karel Jul 22 '13 at 5:47
the entire HDD will become a single partition ? –  Noble Jul 22 '13 at 5:50
there will only be Ubuntu 13.04 installed, as it says. –  Alvar Jul 22 '13 at 6:08
