    Hello and welcome!

    Unless you know what you are doing, the easiest/quickest path in my opinion would be to start from scratch, clearing your hard disk, then installing Windows first, then Ubuntu. You can restore any important data to the drive afterwards from any data backups that you keep on hand. Note that it is possible to install Windows after Linux, but doing so is a bit more complicated, hence the need to know what you are doing.

    Just my opinion and suggestion... as others here might have different recommendations for you.

    As said, Windoze first then Ubuntu is the rule...

    Regarding your problem with your iphone and Ubuntu, have you installed gtkpod from the Ubuntu repositories?

    Perhaps informing us how you have tried to synch your iphone with Ubuntu so far will give us an idea on how to fix your problem maybe. What version of Ubuntu are you using too?
