Linux dual boot with Vista.
Anyone that has successfully installed a Linux distribution after installing Windows Vista please post your results (success or failure) and any advice to help readers here.
I've been trying to find the best solution using current free tools other than using third party commercial partition managers. OpenSUSE 10.2 comes with it's own partition utility but hangs when trying to resize the Windows Vista NTFS partition. I don't know if this is an issue specific to the partition manager that is part of OpenSUSE or possibly an issue specific to Windows Vista. Several Linux distributions come with their own partition manger such as OpenSUSE, Mandriva Linux, etc and I'd be interested in finding out what members here have experienced.
Vista and Fedora on same ATA disk
I partition my drive to have 3 partitions:
0: 200Mb to be used for GRUB, unformatted
1: This is where i installed VISTA
2: Unformatted for Linus
This works just fine with GRUB handling my double boot.
