If you have been using Windows for any length of time you will have acquired some expertise and probably built up a collection of files you don't want to lose, two reasons why you might think moving to Linux is going to be too much trouble. It isn't, trust me and read on...

Dual booting

It is really quite simple to install two operating systems on a single PC, then use a piece of software called a 'boot manager' to choose which to load when you start the computer. Microsoft's boot manager only gives you one option, to boot Windows, but most Linux distros include the 'Lilo' or more often these days 'Grub' boot manager which is quite happy to let you choose from a list of operating systems, including Windows.

Partitioning

A hard disk, or for that matter a floppy, can be divided into several sections called partitions (just like you might partition a big office to make several smaller ones). Each partition is then formatted with whatever file system you want to use, and they don't have to be the same. Generally Windows PCs only have a single partition, though some manufacturers now make a 'restore partition' where they store a backup copy of Windows and their original software bundle in case you need to re-install.

If you are going to be dual booting you will need at least 3 partitions, one for Windows (which might use FAT32 or NTFS formatting), one for the Linux OS and one for 'swap' which is used by Linux as temporary memory rather like 'virtual' memory under Windows. Linux can use various formats, ext2 is common for swap, and can be used for the main bootable partition too, though ext3 or reiserfs are more common. If all this sounds complicated, don't worry the installer supplied with your distro will take the strain. Once partitioned your disk will appear to Windows to have shrunk, Windows simply doesn't recognize the existence of file systems other than its own. Linux is more accommodating and will recognize, and make use of, a wide range of file systems.

Resizing

A few years ago most distros included a partitioning tool which would assess how much space was on your existing Windows disk, and suggest how much it would be safe to give over to Linux. If you checked 'Agree' it then re-sized the Windows partition and re-formatted the freed space for Linux. This worked very reliably with Windows 95, 98 and ME that used the FAT 32 file system, but not so well on NTFS which is normally used by Windows 2000 and XP.

Possibly because of this, or maybe because Microsoft have been grumbling about infringement of the copyright they hold on their file systems, resizing tools have disappeared from most distros, but are still available as separate applications. Whilst you are still in the proprietary software world you might like to buy Norton Partition Magic which is reckoned to be very good. Or you could take your first tentative step into the world of Open Source Software by downloading 'GParted' (Gnome Partition Editor) from Sourceforge.

Gparted is supplied as a small (30MB) .iso image file ready to burn to CD-R (or -RW) to make a bootable CD. Do that and put it to one side for a moment...

Housekeeping

Though GPArted is good, nothing in this life is certain, especially where computers are concerned, so some basic precautions are required. First, a backup of everything you would hate to lose if the partitioning goes wrong. Check that you have the necessary disks to re-install Windows and any Windows software you want to keep using too. If you have them you probably won't need them, but if Gparted fails (or you mess up and make the wrong choices) you'll be glad you've got them. Make a note of settings for Internet dialers, ADSL modem settings, POP3 accounts, SMTP accounts and passwords for everything. It's a good idea to export Internet bookmarks and your email address book too. Then defrag the disk, this makes the re-sizing and partitioning much quicker and more reliable. When you sure you've checked everything, put the Gparted CD in the drive and reboot.

Booting

Your computer may, or may not, be set to boot from the CD/DVD drive. If you're not sure, just wait, if it goes straight into Windows as normal, it isn't. So reboot again and this time watch the screen closely until you get a message from the BIOS along the lines of, 'To Enter Setup...' then do what it says – usually it is 'Hit Escape' or 'Hit Del'. Do it and in the BIOS setup set CDROM as the first boot device. Save settings and exit the BIOS Setup. This time your PC will boot from the GParted CD.

Gparted actually loads a simple version of Linux into RAM, so you will see a lot of unfamiliar messages telling you what's happening, you can ignore them until you get to the 'Select your language' screen. Choose whatever you prefer and then you move onto choosing a keyboard layout. Do that too and you'll be asked to choose the X-server type.

If you've never used Linux before this might seem weird, so a brief digression is in order. 'X' is the graphics system used by most versions of Linux. It drives your screen (via your graphics card) your keyboard and your mouse. The X-server provides services to other software such as window managers and applications. These days fully featured distros use a version of X from Xorg, but it uses a lot of resources so you could choose the simpler Xvesa instead. Next choose your preferred screen resolution and color depth (the defaults will probably be sensible). After a brief pause the Gparted screen pops up.

Partioning Mistake
writen by: Markus on 2006-07-10 18:56:43
I purchased Suse 10.1 from Novell so I would have tech support. However they don't seem to know how to fix my problem. I must have made a mistake during installation. My windows os is not functioning. The data is still there but I can not boot windows. I am using XP sp1. I get a message saying window drive c 100% full. I know that I have plenty of space on my hard drive and must have somehow resized the partion to small? Any idea how to fix that? I have the windows recovery disk but hope to find a way not to loose all my window documents in the process!

I recommend trying a partitioning tool like the Disk Director Suite from Acronis. The installation CD is bootable, and it will show you the size and arrangement of all of your partitions. You can then change their sizes as needed. This isn't a free solution, but the tool works well.

wel ext3 is the file sys used by all general linux distro while windows use ntfs.as long as only linux is operational it wil obviously require u to use ext3 since it is the standard that is used to store the files in linux.its not that fat32 filing sys has gone extinct but it has security problems.it is stil being used by windows an linux as a cross over platform to import files from one OS to another which gives user accesibility an more flexibility.wel i think that u nid to hav a separate partition just fot that particular storage,i.e create a partition to store fat32 files an docs.check out the new trial version of paragon ntfs file sys which is more secure an woks on windows an linux.its stil in the development process but the trial ver is out. hope that it helps.

Hang while installing OpenSuse 10.2
writen by: Michael on 2007-02-19 20:14:46
CD 1 of OpenSuse 10.2 verifies OK. As I run the install. It asks me four times if it really CD 1. After awhile it complains of Xorg x11 server check sum not correct, and will not install it. Then aborts the install. First CD still checks out as OK. Also the Partitioner program on Open Suse is a bit odd. At first it wanted to shrink my partitions. Which errored off. I used a windows 98 Floppy to build a single 20 GB partition. Which it wanted to shrink into a 6.3 GB and one other partition. That OpenSuse install errored off. I used the floppy again to build a forty percent partition (about 7.8 GB) and a sixty percent partition. After I ran the install again, and let it do what it wanted. I now have five partitions. The first two being VFAT, two of the others ext3. Muppy Linux shows the other initrdswap. ha ha ha ha.

SATA DRIVE NOT FOUND (is it a partition
writen by: RJADUTHIE (Roger) on 2007-02-27 13:15:23
I have a DELL INSPIRON 1501 with a FUJITSU MHW2060BH (5600rpm 60GB drive) which is reported to be ATA-8 and SATA 2.5 compliant. I have been trying Fedora Core 5 (Bordeaux) with the DVD-".iso"; I admit this is my first attempt at a LINUX install on a laptop (first time for Fedora, also). The installation process finds no hard disk, there is an option to provide a 'driver.img' CD at the boot: prompt, though the other chance to provide this CD (at the time of the warning message) the CD/DVD-drive fails to respond to eject being pressed (this, I reckon is a bug - what do you think?). Now, I have a problem with this: I require a relevant "driver.img" file for a CD. Is it possible to use a different driver (one from the list)? Is this problem really a partitioning issue (I'm becoming more confident with this concept now, and have tried a few things already, see below). What do you think of this? Have you managed a resolution of the problem? Roger PS. I have repartitioned my XP SP2 space, this is in NTFS; I have also created a 10GB partition (with view to expand later) in FAT32, and experimented with ext2, etc... ...the result was the same - no hard disk recognised. The partitioning work I carried out was achieved with CUTE Partition Manager: a fairly simplistic app. & a re-install of XP SP2 (I don't want to have to do this again). I am now in process of downloading GParted, as this seems like a useful tool (for ever more). Let me know what you think... sorry for the really long message!! ;)

Dual Boot
writen by: Varun Haridas on 2007-06-23 13:20:30
Windows BootLoader does not check for any other operating systems automatically. When you install Windows over a Hard Disk with another Operating System, It reinstalls the grub with its own boot.ini. The boot.ini is not able to recognize the linux splash image either. You would need to install grub from recovery mode in the linux, or reinstall the linux again on its partition which would automatically reinstall grub. If there is another way to do it please suggest . I have not been able to find another alternative, Varun Haridas

writen by: Janus on 2007-09-10 20:48:09
Be forwarned, all is not as simple as it may appear when you build a dual-boot system. While installing Linux is generally easy, subsequent modifications to your partitions, specifically moving or resizing partions can be difficult if not impossible. The problem appears regardless of wether you try to use PartionMagic or GPart. Installing Fedor Linux, which uses Ext4 partion structure (a structure neither Partion Magic nor GPart can manipulate) makes things even more difficult, however I have had the same problem with SUSELinix.

Booting through NTLDR
writen by: Jerry Oberle on 2007-09-11 16:11:45
It is not precisely true that Windows' boot manager "only gives you one option, to boot Windows." The (apparent) problem is that it can't get a Linux kernel into memory. But if you want the system to start running NTLDR, you can set up Grub to start Linux with no intervention, install it on the partition boot sector (not the MBR!), and then copy the partition boot sector into a 512 byte file that you put into the root of Windows C: Set up windows to list that file as "Linux" in its boot menu, and it will appear to the uninitiated that you're booting Linux from Windows NTLDR.

Hi guys, as a fresh meat I would like to ask you for kind advices in a mattter as follows: I am running a dual boot of the XP and Mandriva on a single HDD), the XP being my primary OS. Now I would like to remove the Mandriva and install something smaller - Ubuntu or Mint - instead. The Mint distro contains the GParted application, I seem to understand its sense. I see I have partitions as follows: dev/HDA - DVD ROM dev/SDA1 - WIN System - must not be touched dev/SDA5 - WIN docs, movies, games etc. - must not be touched dev/SDA6 - Mandriva root / system - to be replaced dev/SDA7 - linux swap - to be replaced dev/SDA8 - Mandriva docs, pics, etc. - to be replaced Now, can I install the Mint from a live CD over the Mandriva partitions straight out without harming my XP in any way... ...or shall I delete the Mandriva partitions with the Mint`s GParted (render them unassigned) first? If they need to be deleted, does the order mater? Shall I delete the swap first and then the larger of the remaining two as I think I have seen advised in here? Once this is done, will I need to cuddle with the GRUB/MBR? I mean, currently when starting my PC a Mandriva screen appears prompting me to chose what OS I want to boot (XP being default). Will these settings somewhat remain in the bootloader? I think this should be it - but will very much wellcome any of your suggestions. With kind Regards, Majkl

dual boot ubuntu with vista
writen by: james on 2008-07-01 19:29:03
I have a Toshiba m305s4819. Toshibas come with recovery disk with all the drivers included so i didn't have to create them or download any drivers. got it recently, never used linux before so i wanted to try it out. figured i'd dual boot since i'm used to windows. Had to reformat completly to create partition, microsoft partition manager would not aquire as much space as i wanted. once i partioned the drive i installed vista(perfect install). then just pop in ubuntu, installed on other partition perfect. recognized all my hardware. smooth install. grub boot manager works great. still getting used to linux. but super easy to install.

Hdd does't format any partitions
writen by: Rohit on 2008-08-14 02:01:38
Hey Homey's.. I have a dell XPS M1530. The specs are as follows: 320 Toshiba hdd. 2.0 Ghz 800 Mhz FSB intel Core 2 duo. 4 Gigs of RAM. 256 Mg Nvidia Geforce video card. Installed XP Pro SP2 and Vista home premium on the hdd as a dual boot. Chopped the hdd in such a manner that 14 GB is free for RHEL5. Booted off the disc and went up to partitioning screen but on trying to create any custom partition,setup gave error that there is no free disc space left. Had AHCI turned off in the BIOS for XP to boot properly. Thought that it's the culprit. Turned on the AHCI in BIOS but still no go. Have heard that there is a known issue with the toshiba hdd with RHEL5 installation. Any guesses folks ?? by the way... did google it but it ain't much help. Any suggestions are welcome. PS->Vmware also doesn't detect the virtual hdd on trying to install RHEL5 on my XP Box.

Hi, I'm new to linux, and I need help installing Fedora 10 onto my 1TB Seagate SATA NTFS external hard drive. I burned a LiveCD of the F10 core, and can effortlessly dual boot from the CD, but when I choose to install to Hard Drive, the installer tells me that there is not enough room to allocate partition /. I selected the "Remove all existing partitions and create default layout" installation method so that I can do a nice clean install. I have absolutely nothing on the brand new drive, and I really really want to get this whole Linux thing worked out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

prees f2 during starty system go to set up and go to deive operation set combined opreration default ids normal which is not support for rdhat. ok then afgain install redhat. error will remove . [quote]I have a DELL INSPIRON 1501 with a FUJITSU MHW2060BH (5600rpm 60GB drive) which is reported to be ATA-8 and SATA 2.5 compliant. I have been trying Fedora Core 5 (Bordeaux) with the DVD-".iso"; I admit this is my first attempt at a LINUX install on a laptop (first time for Fedora, also). The installation process finds no hard disk, there is an option to provide a 'driver.img' CD at the boot: prompt, though the other chance to provide this CD (at the time of the warning message) the CD/DVD-drive fails to respond to eject being pressed (this, I reckon is a bug - what do you think?). Now, I have a problem with this: I require a relevant "driver.img" file for a CD. Is it possible to use a different driver (one from the list)? Is this problem really a partitioning issue (I'm becoming more confident with this concept now, and have tried a few things already, see below). What do you think of this? Have you managed a resolution of the problem? Roger PS. I have repartitioned my XP SP2 space, this is in NTFS; I have also created a 10GB partition (with view to expand later) in FAT32, and experimented with ext2, etc... ...the result was the same - no hard disk recognised. The partitioning work I carried out was achieved with CUTE Partition Manager: a fairly simplistic app. & a re-install of XP SP2 (I don't want to have to do this again). I am now in process of downloading GParted, as this seems like a useful tool (for ever more). Let me know what you think... sorry for the really long message!! ;)[/quote]

Partitioning versus using a Virtual machine
writen by: masinick on 2009-07-16 13:48:13
These days, if you want to run more than one operating system, if you have a computer with two or more CPU processors (as is common with Duo Core, Quad Core, and similar offerings from AMD, chances are you have plenty of resources to throw a virtualization solution, also commonly called a VM (for virtual machine), a hypervisor, a more recent name for a virtual machine, and you may have seen things, such as Virtualbox, VMware, Parallels, QEMU, as well as a number of Hypervisor solutions mentioned in various publications. If you have a modern configuration, I would suggest to use something like Virtualbox OSE, which is free, and it can be installed either on Windows, on Linux, or both.

If you cannot manage a virtual machine because you have under 512 MB of memory installed or a slow, old uniprocessor computer, you can still dual boot or even multi-boot, depending on how much disk space you have available. You will need to learn something about GNU GRUB, the modern boot loader that can boot many different systems, Gparted, fdisk, cfdisk, or the equivalent to manage the disk partitions. Frankly, a USB disk drive is so cheap these days, unless you cannot spare $50-100, why not just buy an inexpensive disk, and if you have a couple of hundred dollars that you can spare, why not another system? If it is just for testing, why not a used old system? You can get a fairly decent used old Dell Computer, such as a 4650, for somewhere in the neighborhood of $40, and it most certainly can run any version of Linux just fine. Putting something like SimplyMEPIS, PCLinuxOS, or Linux Mint on a used, refurbished old Dell computer is likely to be very easy even for the relative newcomer.

Look into one or more of these ideas; there are lots of ways to get into Linux.

Another one is to purchase an inexpensive USB stick preloaded with Linux. Mandriva was the first major vendor to get into this approach; their USB Flash implementation of Mandriva is a bit more expensive than some others, but it is a very good one. A few low cost CD vendors now also produce inexpensive Linux distros on USB, so check that out as an alternative as well.

A few months ago, I installed Fedora 10 on a Aspire One notebook. Since I did not have any external cd drive, I installed it by creating a bootable usb flash drive. I followed the installation wizard and created a 20g ext3 partition. Everything works great, but now I want to get rid of this partition, and Fedora, to install ubuntu. In windows, I tried merging this partition with the Acer(C:) with "Norton Partition Magic", but this does not work. What should I do?
