Hey there everyone.
After playing with quite a few Live CDs / DVDs and due to the direction that my job is expecting us to go, I'd like to dual boot my year-old-plus Windows 7 machine with Fedora.
I've run the Live DVD with Fedora 19 and my machine seems to handle it without any issues.
Basic specs on my machine: HP desktop with an AMD processor (A6-3650) 8 GB of RAM and the Win 7 on it is the 64-bit Home Premium.
I've also backed up all my documents, files, pictures and music in the event that my experiment doesn't quite go the way I'd like.
And I've also made all my Recovery DVDs to get my Win 7 machine back to day one, if that needs to happen.
I've also got a quite a bit of space on my HDD - currently have 775GB free out of 914.
So, a couple of questions before I move forward on this project.
Here is the guide that I plan on using.
- Anyone have another one that they would recommend instead of the one I've linked to?
- Amount of space to shrink? Any recommendations for this?
Unless something really drastic happens, I suspect I'm going to be running and playing with Fedora for the life of this computer. Not really sure what else to ask, so that's what I'm here for - looking not only for answers but some questions I may have forgotten to ask before I start the process.
Feedback, impressions, ideas and coffee are always welcome.
