its like this I have a notebook preloaded with win7, in which I shrank the disc to get 150 gb unallocated space,from it I crated 2 60gb each drives and left the remaining 30gb, which is now called free space…
now the question is this free space same as unallocated or RAW space where I can install linux to dual boot with win7?
basically, in a word, Yes
Only you don’t say if it’s free space in an extended partition or whether the 2 x 60GB partitions are primary or logical. It could matter, depending just how many primary partitions you now have
at present I have only sabayon5 dvd which failed to boot on this notebook, however once the download of opensuse 11.2 is complete , I will boot and see, what it shows. I did not use any linux for year or so, I assume that installation method in GUI is same as 11.0.
