In Win7 use disk management to resize partition to make room for your Ubuntu distro....... then when installing ubuntu use the partitioning utilities to make partitions for it if dual booting you will need a boot partition, a root partition, and a swap partition and I would recommend a usr partition as well

Are you installing ubuntu dedicately on your machine or you are going to make it a dual boot system with windows?? If you don't have anything to loose on your hard disk and want to install ubuntu only on your machine then you have a Green signal, Just hit Continue button
