Hello,

 

I have two hard drives 1 TB ea. and on one of them I have WIN 10 installed. I want to learn how to use Linux in specific Fedora.

So, how can I install fedora on the other hard drive and be able to select the desired OS on startup.

 

Thanks

Eh Anaconda is a rather awful installer and Fedoras Package manager is rather poop these days.

Plus its hard to upgrade, hope you enjoy command line prompt.

No if you wanted a more server grade OS I would go openSUSE.

No if you are a new user, Linux Mint despite the recent troubles it had is still the best beginners distro.

If all the news put you off to Mint then try Ubuntu, it not only has great UEFI support and Unity is better than Gnome shell


You know you want me baby!

Personally I prefer gnome on larger monitors and unity for laptops. But that's up for debate.

In Windows, I use Rufus, but there are a few different free tools. Rufus seems to work just fine.

Right now I am multi-booting with Windows 10 all by itself on one SSD, Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.3 and Ubuntu 15.10 on another SSD and Debian 8.3.0, Kubuntu 15.10 and Linux Mint KDE 17.3 on an hdd. It is fun and easy.

When you have done this you may need to update grub

Here you go, free download for Ubuntu! :thumbup2:

 

http://www.ubuntu.com/download

 

Maybe someone else with Kali experience can help you on that issue. 

 

Good Luck! :)

I tried to install Kali once, and looking at my DVD now it is only 2,876,448 kb, small enough for a 4 gb stick. I had problems trying to install Kali, so I skipped it.

A minimum of 10 GB disk space is needed for the Kali Linux install, And when you take word lists into account  30 GB is needed.
