I fished around and found how to add opensuse to an existing Windows installation, but couldn’t find the other way around. I’m currently on opensuse 12.2 on a 100gig partition, and I was wanting to add a dual boot option for Windows 7.
My current partitions:
lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 931.5G 0 disk └─sda1 8:1 0 100G 0 part /
fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk identifier: 0x000b1531 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 209713151 104855552 83 Linux
No swap partition as I have 16gig RAM.
What I’m looking to do is add a Windows 7 partition for the purpose of playing games.
I’d like some advice on suggested partition size/layout, and how to actually go about installing it. I think I’m using Grub2 but I’m not sure.
Thanks in advance.
