Shrinking the Vista partition and format the rest of the HD as ext4 and install Fedora into that
partition and put the GRUB in MBR, is this the right way to dual-boot fedora with Vista?:D

I got an acer aspire 4310 with vista pre installed.
I installed fedora 10 on the D:/ drive by setting the D:// drive as free space within vista and then installed fedora 10. So now I have dual boot vista and fedora using grub.
How can I delete vista and install Fedora 12 on that C:// partition and be able to keep and boot my fedora 10.
Before installation I resized my C:-partition from inside of Windows so I could get some free space to install Fedora on (so I would be able to dual-boot with Fedora and Windows Vista). The installation went fine and Fedora is usable and all BUT I am not able to boot Windows Vista anymore!
I'm having a problem getting grub to detect my XP partition.
Hard drive partitioned with primary partitions (Vista and Vista restore) and an extended partition for data
did not want anything to do with Vista so
I Installed XP in extended partition
Vista boot manager offered Vista or XP
All worked for years
Hi guys, I am a complete noob.... heres my situation, I have installed fedora 11 on my desktop computer last night. I am trying to dual boot windows vista ultimate and fedora 11. My hard drive is 250 gb and I have aloted 200 gb for vista and the rest to linux which is an unpartitioned space.
after trying Ubuntu from Live CD, I've decided to install it:
I partitioned the HD where my Vista installation is by shrinking it on Vista, and I've left the space empty without formatting it; then I've used the live CD to install Ubuntu (12.04), which seemed to complete fine.
At boot no GRUB requester happens and Vista boots regularly, whereas from its disk management tool the empty space I had
Windows Vista Basic installed on Hard Disk
Created a partition (after Windows Partition - i.e Windows is in the 1st Partition)
Installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit (UP6) on new partition
Grub2 ( I assume) gets installed and presents the selection screen at boot time
Four options available,
Linux Mint Recovery
Windows Vista Recovery
