I recently bought a portable with a Windows 7 system.
I want to install openSUSE 11.3 but I also want to keep Windows 7 - so I need to install a dual boot system.
On my desktop I have GRUB with Windows XP and openSUSE 11.3 and all works fine.
How do I proceed ? I did not find much documentation yet, but maybe I looked in the wrong places.
Thanks for your answer.
I tried to do it from the install DVD, but I got the message that my Windows 7 partition AND my “Recovery partition” would be erased, which I clearly do not want to be happening.
Very important for you to provide the output from fdisk, because you have a Recovery Partition on your drive that you need to keep for your portable (lap?).
I’m not sure you have a free partition to install OpenSuse. I think you may need to use Parted, Gparted LiveCD or similar product to resize your HDD and create a partition with enough room to install OpenSuse 11.3.
