Hi guys I'm thinking of setting up a dual boot system on one of my PCs so I can boot straight to Linux. So far I've had a dabble with Ubuntu booting from a pen drive but I'd like something a little more permanent. I do have a reason for it as well, a couple of big NTFS drives have gone wonky and aren't working properly in Windows so I'd like to copy all the data from them in Linux onto new drives (neither of them are boot drives). Does that sound like a simple enough thing to do? As I say, I've used Ubuntu before now but I would like some opinions on the best easy to use Linux version for a newbie at it (heck I may be on the right path with Ubuntu...no idea!). Finally...how best should I setup the drives so I can dual boot W7 64 or Linux on one machine? I'd like it to dafault to Windows but give me the option of going to Linux as well...any suggestions? Many thanks!
