I have Two computers a win7 duel boot ubuntu 11.04 natty installation working fine right now.I want to know if I can install linux mint on the same hard disk as well.
If my understanding of manual partitioning is correct, could I shrink the ubuntu primary partition,create an extended partition,and in this partition then create say two logical partitions and then install mint to them.
I have a old desktop that I reformatted a while back, I (wiped windows) and installed ubuntu I then added Mint , I installed mint alongside ubuntu and it worked out fine.
I am going to donate this machine to a class for underprivileged students, and before this old computer goes, I would like to put mint on my current win7 machine.and move some data.
Is what I am suggesting possible (i.e. triple boot on win7 using the four primary partitions with one extended.to accommodate (Mint.)
I have got as far as partitioning on win7 machine with Mint Julia and ubuntu is seen on the disk and i can select side by side installation but as there is no mention of windows operating system I am scared to proceed in case it uses the windows partitions.
Anyone who can help ,please.
