This question already has an answer here:

I'm confused about Ubuntu, last time I installed it, I lost all my Data on hard drive (as I have no experience of Ubuntu). But still I love this operating system as I want some change, the thing I want to know, how can I install Ubuntu so that my all data, partitions and windows 7 wont get effected?

I have Ubuntu 13.04 desktop ISO file. I have made a bootable USB also. I want to install it inside/alongside windows 7, so that i keep learning how to use it and then, maybe migrate to it completely, can you help me on this??

Since you have already made the bootable USB, then change First Boot Device in BIOS to Boot USB. Once the boot process starts, click on install Ubuntu

Once the installation starts, Select install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7. Click continue.

Make sure that you have the proper drive selected from the drop-down.

The right partition is where Ubuntu is going to be installed. The left partition is the Windows operating system. Drag the handle bar to re-size the Ubuntu partition. Once you have selected the the size of your Ubuntu partition click install now.
