Ubuntu: Is it possible to run Windows for one User and Ubuntu for another User simultaneously?


Can I install two OS on my PC without harming it. I was thinking maybe Ubuntu latest verion to install. I already have Windows 7 Home installed on my PC. I would like to know if I can keep Win 7 on one USER and UBUNTU on another. In this way I can switch USER in between. But I don't want to harm my PC in any way or corrupt some files. THANK YOU


Yes ofcourse you can dual boot your os. Create some free space for installing ubuntu and then restart your computer with the Ubuntu installation disk. You will be asked to erase and install or install alongside with windows. You can chose the second option and follow the instructions on the screen


Yes you can. If you already have Windows XP or 7 installed the easiest way to install Ubuntu without removing Windows is using a windows installer called Wubi. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/windows-installer . You can also install Ubuntu the normal way by booting it from a DVD or USB drive.

If you're referring to running Ubuntu and Windows simultaneously i.e, one OS inside another you can take a look at virtualbox. https://www.virtualbox.org/‎
