Will my Window OS overwrite after Ubutun OS downloaded and installed ?

Thanks and Best Regards Jacky Loh


All you need is already in Ubuntu Documentation. Take a look to:

WindowsDualBoot and Installation

No, just MBR if Windows and Ubuntu are on the same disk.

Before installing you should make some free space on your drive, the best way to do that is by using Windows disk management tool.

  • The question was if Windows will be overwritten. The answer is NO, Ubuntu installation will only overwrite MBR and it will do that only if you install grub on the same drive as Windows. Unless you choose to format whole drive. – przemo Aug 27 '14 at 17:23
  • I see - please keep in mind that good answers should also explain why you state something. – guntbert Aug 27 '14 at 19:38
