problems on ubuntu installation

Asked by Asim Dangol on 2012-06-05

Hey, i wanted to install ubuntu and wanted to dual boot but unluckily while shrinking my hard drive, all the volumes were converted into dynamic drive. now the problem is, i dont want to loose my data and since, i only have 1 hard disk, i have no option for back-up (luckily i can still boot win7).

Now the question is can i still install ubuntu in my new dynamic drive?? without any data loss

Thanks in advance.. :)

Then you should have the data backed up...... or the data is disposable to you. Drives cana nd do fail and messing around with partitions could lose the data if you are not careful.

Windowws7 can resize it's own partitions. I suggest you run a full backup then resize and install to the free space

since i have no spare disk so i can't back up my datas so thats the problem

hey since i have pretty large space left on my c drive so, now I have though of making a new partition through linux partition manager and converting the specific new partition to ext4 and install ubuntu on that new ext4 partition. Since i am a newbie to linux. I dont know will it work or it will corrupt the whole disk.

Hope you can help me.

Can you help with this problem?
