Unable to install Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on Windows 7 64-bit
I am trying to install (going for dual boot) Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit(on D:) on my PC with Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate(already on C:) and I have the following questions :
1. Installation guide says that I should be connected to the Internet while installing Ubuntu but also states to restart PC and boot from CD. How can I connect to the internet in this case? How can I configure my wired broadband that I use on Windows on Ubuntu Live CD and then proceed from thereon for Ubuntu installation?
2. I want to specify partitions manually(advanced) when asked to allocate drive space during installation. I have kept my D: drive for Ubuntu and have c,d,e,f drives already. If I use d: for 'root' should I also use another for 'home'(which i am not willing to as e: and f: have data in it and are too big for Linux according to me 180gb each). If I partition D: into two(root+home), what should be the size of root and home partitions if I make then out of D:(one primary, one logical)?
