I've installed Ubuntu 12.10, but wish to install Win 7 as dual boot.
I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my newly built machine and wish to install Win 7 as a dual boot. I'm not sure about how I like Linux and wish to have a fall back without removing it entirely. I want to poke at it and learn how to use it with the functionality I know in Windows. My first issue is to get my Kodak printer working, and the faq's i have read make it seem unlikely that I can get it working because of the lack of drivers. My HD is 1 TB and I am pretty sure I didn't partition it Christmas Eve. I have several smaller HD's and a old laptop HD 40 gigs I believe which i could use, or just buy a SSD, which was my initial plan anyway, but I ran out of time. Note the laptop drive has windows already installed and many files which I access regularly. Additionally I bought a external 2 TB hard drive that I suppose I could use, is it possible to just plug it in and use it that way? As I might have forgot to mention, I am pretty much a noob. Thanks
you should describe clearly.
if it's not a laptop connect one of those smaller HDDs to youre system and install windows on it. after installing windows your system will boot directly in to windows , for solving this problem do this : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...tallingWindows
Thank you, i am going to install a SSD for boot and use the existing drive for storage. Now I need to figure that out, I downloaded Clonezilla, but since i'm new to Linux the absence of instructions makes most tasks seem daunting.
