Updating ubuntu from dual boot windows 7
I will not spent too much time on this particular backup method, I store all my files on my NAS, so anything on my computer can go anyway.For files that are stored in “My Documents”, you can use the “File History” tool.Resizing/Shrinking your Windows partition is relatively easy – given that you have enough hard-disk space.For this we will use the “” – if you can’t find it, type “Disk Management” in the search box of the Control Panel window.Not likely that this will happen, total destruction, but the steps we take in this guide can result in a computer that will no longer boot your Windows setup, and might require a total reinstall of everything from scratch.Consequences like loss of all data should be expected!
: I ran into this article for older Ubuntu versions on Acer.
We have 2 options here: either create a bootable USB stick or a installation DVD.
For convenience and not wanting to waste another DVD, I recommend using the USB Stick method, specially when you have USB 3.0 available (computer and stick).
I usually work on a Mac, and when working under Linux or Windows, I resort to Virtual Machines (VMWare Fusion / Parallels Desktop).
Sometimes however, a virtual machine is not up to the task.
