If you are learning linux.  Install it in VirtualBox or VMWare Player.  That way you don't wreck the system you are used to.  Dual booting is a hard use case to justify with the ease of virtualization.

I wrote Ubuntu over my old Win7 and dont regret it. When i get enough practice here I will be switching to another distro though. I am not as sure about recovering info as others here are but as far as Ubuntu is concerned you might want to keep it. One does not simply install Windows, one must painfully buy the Windows then force the computer to accept its fate ;)
