  1. Wasn't sure if this should go in Windows OS or other, but here it is.....

    So my pc has XP pro installed and Ubuntu. I have it setup with a 10gig partition for XP, a 10 gig for Ubuntu and then rest of the 500 gig hdd is for storage and has my My documents and program files on it. I also have a 1TB hdd in there. What I would like to do is create new partition on one of the hdd (that part I know how to do), then install windows 7 on that partition. I have been trying to find a guide to help me but they are either just answers to specific questions, guides for vista, xp & Ubuntu or guides for doing the hole thing from scratch, or get very technical in Linux and go over my head :p.

    Oh, I should also let you know, I am a Linux Noob, and have Ubuntu on there to play around with it some and try to learn on a linux OS.

    Anyways, does anyone have a nice guide as to how to do this? Or is it fairly simple and I can just dive right in? Also would it be better to make the partition for Win 7 on the 500 gig with the other OS's on it or the other hdd?

    Thanks
