There is an easy way to make machine dual boot with Windows & Ubuntu. There is an small program called Wubi installer stands for Windows Ubuntu installer. You can use this. You need three things
- An empty partitioned drive with at least 5GB space.
- Ubuntu ISO image
- Wubi installer program
You will get Wubi & latest version of Ubuntu from here
Keep Wubi program & Ubuntu ISO image at same path i.e in same folder.
Run Wubi program, it will ask for empty drive name & username & password for Ubuntu root user.
Provide the details & follow the instructions. Ubuntu will get installed in 20 minutes.
& I liked the thing is that you can uninstall Ubuntu from Windows control panel at any time.
I hope it will help you to install Ubuntu on Windows machine.
All the Best.
