I'm headed back into the land of dual booting and just made myself some space on my current HDD.
You can see the latest screenshot of my HDD here, (Post # 14) where I got some great advice from a couple of Bleeping Computer Members.
My computer is a HP Desktop p6-2143w running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I've looked over the exhausting and seemingly complicated How-To over at the Kubuntu Precise Installation page but I can't really tell if I'm ready to drop in my .ISO and install it.
After I adjusted my HDD and made the Logical partition, I've restarted my computer a couple of times to make sure everything is where it's supposed to be.
I've also dropped in the .ISO DVD I made of Kubuntu and test drove the OS - everything seemed to run just fine. Opened some pics, surfed the next, etc.
So, based on my current HDD setup, am I ready to drop that DVD in there and install it next to my Windows or does anyone know if I need to *tweak* that HDD just a bit more before I do that?
- I made my Recovery Discs for my Windows 7 OS when I first purchased the computer, so those are nearby if I need them.
- I recently backed up every thing on this computer in the event of a massive failure.
- I just downloaded and installed EasyBCD 2.3 on my machine in case I need it.
