I am trying to dual booting elementary OS with windows 7. Basically on my 160 GB HDD, i have following partitions:

sda1 which is C drive having windows 7.
sda5 which is D drive with data

and an 10 GB unallocated space.

Now my question is: Can I install Luna on that 10 GB space? Will both OS work if I allocated that 10GB partition for both OS and boot-loader? Last time I tried to install Luna with Windows, none of the OS loaded on next boot.

I am a novice to this so your help will be appreciated.

  • There is a LOT of excellent information and procedures already written and available if you'd just google it. – mdpc Apr 26 '14 at 20:37

Yeah, you certainly can. If it doesn't work just run from some live-cd/usb with linux the grub-install /dev/sda command and you will have both Luna, Windows and any other OS installed in the drive listed in the booting section
