“How to” Dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 (Ubuntu installed first)

Searching for triple boot was less enlightening, but you get the idea. Shrink your partition to make room for Windows 7, install it, then edit GRUB to include Windows 7 (I don't know how, I just know you have to).

Any questions? If it's anything directly related to Ubuntu, I can't help you. You'll need to visit the Linux sub-forum. But that's basically how you do it. :huh:

Yes, that would be advisable. Also, keep in mind: with a custom built PC, you're on your own as far as drivers and support go. You might want to check things like Windows 7 drivers for your graphics card and such (graphics card manufacturer's website).
