Then watch as it asks for partition sizes. For Linux I take the suggested plan. Fedora installs it's boot manager so this is almost a push the return key install. However I've seen people agonize and research this for months. Why do that. You can always wipe out and try again.
Be sure you have your XP 64 drivers ready and if you install to SATA, I feel sorry for you already.
Wasn't sure which forum to post this in since it concerns both Windows and Linux, but hopefully someone will have advice. I'm wanting to set up a dual-boot of Windows XP Professional 64-bit Edition and Fedora Core 6 x64. I've bought a new hard-drive ready for the cause with the intention of partitioning half for Windows and half for Linux. My question is, which installation would be best to run first? And should I partition the whole drive and then re-partition with the other OS install, or just partition half and leave the other half unpartitioned ready for the next OS install?
This is of course assuming that what I'm trying to do is possible, but I don't see why it shouldn't be. I know Linux is a bit more complicated to set up partitions for though so I'd appreciate some advice/links on that front if you know of any, especially relating to Fedora Core. I have installed Linux before but that was for use as a server rather than a workstation.
If anyone has instructions on how to set up the dual-boot as well, that'd be helpful
