I am just about to install a new SATA Drive to my PC and already have Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty installed on existing SATA drive.
I am going to install Windows XP onto the new drive. I can see 3 options: 1) Should I just install drive and insert XP disk and then wait for everything to turn out ok. I am assuming Windows will find the Jaunty drive and allow me to set up dual boot to it?
2) Should I disconnect the 'Jaunty' Hard Drive install the new Drive and then install Windows. And follow the advice here
3) Install Windows on current 'Jaunty' Drive and then reinstall Jaunty on the new drive.
3) is my least favourite - after all I am only putting windows on for the teenagers school needs.......
I would want Ubuntu as the default boot.
What is the best way and what issues may I have? Any advice gratefully received before I start lashing this up...... I am a firm newbie for Linux.
