    Yes it should.
    But keep in mind to install Windows first and afterwards Ubilinux (or Ubuntu), because Windows will overwrite GRUB bootloader and you'll be unable to dualboot!

    Hi gat
    Thats true.
    To solve this problem, just start Ubuntu via USB in live mode (burn the image as you burnt Ubilinux). Once Ubuntu is booted in Live-Mode, use GParted to make your partitions. There are several tutos out there how to make a propper windows-linux-dualboot pattition table.
    Cheers Michael

    I already know that the problem is that c ubilinux necessarily takes the entire dique

    Hi gat
    Ubilinux does not need the entire disk, in fact, it needs just abot 3-5 gig.
    In my case, I have a ubilinux/ubuntu dualboot. Ubilinux has a 6 gig partition, and Ubuntu takes the remainig space.

    If you have Ubilinux already installed, then it has clearly taken the whole disk. If this is the case, I would suggest the following:
    1. Make a Ubuntu-Live USB sick
    2. Boot into Live-Ubuntu
    3. Open GParted
    4. Format the whole disk
    5. Create a new partition table which allows Linux/Windows dualboot
    6. Install Windows FIRST
    7. Install Ubilinux SECOND

    Cheers
