This guide is for installing Windows 7 AFTER Ubuntu is installed. For installation instructions on how to install Ubuntu On a Windows computer see this Instructable. I believe Ubuntu (all Linux distros really) to be better then Windows but I want to play games and Windows is still king in that respect. 

Step 1: Disclamer

OK, I have to give this out because if some one wipes their hard drive because they didn't listen and they want to sue me. This is the world we live in.
This Instructable involves repartitioning your hard drive which is a Mundane task but still has a tiny chance to break something so Be careful and don't do anything dumb :-) OK? Also installing OS's can delete all of your data if you don't pay attention to what your doing. I take no responsibility to what you do. 
I know your on about installing Win7 after Ubuntu but I did it the other way, with no need for vm/partition's etc. You can try it from here-http://wubi-installer.org/ The more I use Ubuntu the more I like it, nice instructable :-D
yeah, and you dont need to partition & do all the low level stuff, when you are already having win7 running
i used daemon tools and mounted the iso and ran the install
Yah I know it is really easy to install windows first but I had ubuntu with a bunch of files and settings so I did it the hard way. :-)
I love that movie!
Is Ubuntu a form of Linux?

no i think it just comes with different programs by default and it might have different screen options
that;s grood, and thanks.
