We know that we need to create separate logical partition for installing Linux and we also need to format that partition and we can’t keep Linux and Windows on same partition.
My Friends now don’t worry!!!!!!!!
Linux can be installed on the same logical partition or drive where windows is installed and without deleting any windows content.
We can use a tool for installing Ubuntu linux into our PCs without harming Windows installation.One of the latest releases by Ubuntu, Wubi can do it for us. With Wubi we can install or uninstall Ubuntu on Windows in same folder.Wubi is a Windows application which runs in windows environment and can be downloaded for free here.
