Hello.. I am using windows 7 64bit and I want to install Fedora along with the windows.
I partition my drive D: to 100GB which is total of 238GB of size for fedora O.S
I partition it by this process.
My computer--> right click--> manage-->Disk management. And then I shrink the new volume. The new drive will be created as I:
But when I am going to install fedora. It didn't show that newly created drive i.e I:
Why it is happening. I format that drive many times but nothing works. All it shows me in fedora that 238GB drive.
Is there is a mistake in partition?
The partition format is NTFS?
Linux OS will need about 3 or 4 partitions to run.
OEM Windows 7 can often chew up 3 primary partitions.
When you shrink the HDD set the new space as a extended logical partition NOT as primary partition
When you boot with Fedora you can divvy up the extended logical drive as boot, swap, home or whatever you want
A single primary parition will not allow this.
