I am currently running windows and I would like to dual boot with OpenSuse.
I have three partition on one of which I have installed windows. The second one contains documents and the 3rd has nothing on it although it is formatted as an NTFS partition. The label of the blank partition is C:
When I am installing open suse how do I make open suse install on the C: partition and not use any space on the other two partition?
If I have to do some manual configuration I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me a step by step set of instructions
You can either override the installer manually, or delete the partition so that it will not be seen as a Windows partition and therefore fair game for use by Linux. For the latter, a live CD like gparted can do the job. For the former, I’m sure there’s a tute somewhere on the wiki, or just have a go at the partitioner GUI, it won’t write any changes until you commit. In fact it might even automatically pick partition 3 who knows and all that worrying was for nothing.
