gparted - dual boot win7 and ubuntu

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

On my laptop (dell inspiron 1520, 150Gb) I want to install win7 and ubuntu.
Here is what I'm thinking about the partition:

- win7 primary ntfs 40Gb
- data shared win7 and ubuntu primary(?) ntfs 60Gb
- ubuntu primary(?) ext4 50Gb
- swap 4Gb
- no /home partition

I created these partitions in gparted (live) but when I try to install Win7, there is "no drives found" warning.



Why that ?

Then I found this website http://dedoimedo.com/computers/dual-boot-windows-7-ubuntu.html
So I tried this as well but still "no drives found".



Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong ?

And if I browse for drivers, I can see all my partitions....

I also tried this but still "no drives found".


Is the problem from my partition ?

Hey Dalf,

You should delete all your partitions with GParted.
Then start installing Win7. Then you will see your 150Gb unallocated. Then you can create your Win7 partition (~40Gb).
After that, you can run GParted and create your partitions for Ubuntu.
