I was reading a thread on here, where it said " linux has to boot windoes" Will i be starting my comp into the mbs where i boot from the dvd now ? or will it give an option: in the boot order like; hd, dvd drive,floppy disc drive,ubuntu ?
and will i have to completely reinstall windows after the partitioning is done ? or will it be fine after just being shrunk ? thanks for any reply.
1. BACK UP your important data in Windows.
2. Defragment your Windows partition so that all the used data is on one end of the partition. This lessens the chance that shrinking the partition will cause data loss.
You shouldn't have to reinstall MS Windows after shrinking its partition, but back up your stuff in case something does go wrong.Registered Linux user #270181
