I am new to Ubuntu and Linux.
I have Windows 7 on my PC. I plan on doing a dual boot with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. According to what I have read so far, by simply following the instructions on the Ubuntu prompts, the system will do the dual boot for me if I click the "install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7" option. Is this true? Does this option properly partition my hard drive to where Windows 7 AND Ubuntu will run properly?
Also, should I place the flash drive with Ubuntu installed on it in my PC BEFORE I shut my computer off and then reboot, or shut the computer off and THEN place the flash drive in the system?
Thanks for your time and answers. They are well appreciated.
