Hello,

Do you have some unpartitioned space on the hard disk drive in your computer? If yes, you can try to install Ubuntu on it.

And to keep your Windows partition alive, make sure you don't select "Use entire disk" during installation

there is an option at the partiton screen [assuming you have free space] for a manual configuration

use that editor to configure the partitions.

don't forget the swap partition

HEY YOU CAN SELECT THE OPTION 'USE THE LARGEST CONTINOUS FREE SPACE' IN THE PARTITION MANAGER. BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST 4GB OF UNPARTITIONED SPACE.

Can you help with this problem?
