When installing windows 7 it creates a small system partition. Does the Ubuntu install create a partition like this? Do I need to alter this Windows 7 partition (size) ?

  • note that the Ubuntu install will be much smaller than Windows. – strugee Jun 17 '13 at 5:17

Ubuntu will create all the partitions it needs, regardless of whether you decide to dual-boot with Windows 7 or not. The setup program will ask you if you want to dual-boot or simply wipe out Windows and install Ubuntu. If you're especially into all this stuff, you can still control the sizes of the partitions Ubuntu creates.
