    Hey, its your man, UltimateiHacker94 and this is one of those rare moments where I actually need help. =P

    I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 to my desktop computer, but I want to keep my WIndows partition on there. As I was in the install process, it only gave me two options which said Erase and Use Entire Disk (not what i want to do) and another option that says Specify Partitions Manually (Advanced). Can anyone tell me how to "Specify Partitions Manually," it worked perfectly fine on my Desktop that's upstairs (But i think its just because I deleted Windows on that one).

    Thanks for your Help,
    -UltimateiHacker94 (Ui94)

    No, but that's what I am trying to do. Its giving me a different screen that I have never seen before. Usually, it would give me an easy Partitioning screen, but I cant access it so I have to do the advanced partitioning and I don't know how to.

    I believe I already have a Windows Partition.

    EDIT
    I think I'm just going to use Wubi for now and use my Live CDs when I get my laptop

    The best way to do it is to make some free space using the partition tool in Windows, then set ubuntu to install on the largest free space.

    yeah, best option is to use WUBI (you can winrar the iso download to get it) thats how i installed my version of ubuntu on a partition. it does it all for you.
