Windows! have fun detecting there is a grub. One of my first installation as I remember was first installing linux then windows in the earlier part of the disk.Hi everyone.
I have a small Laptop on the way and want to install Linux on it.
It comes with Windows 10 Pro.
Can I skip the Windows 10 Set-Up stage and just go on to install Linux.
If I can, how will this effect Windows if I ever do decide to run windows,
will the windows installer insist on using the disc space already taken
I ask because looking at a thread on here reminded me of the time
I installed Linux, and Windows update always broke Grub, and I want
to avoid this, ever since I deleted windows after installing Linux and have
no idea if Windows update still breaks Grub.
Have a live Grub CD and some linux "Rescue" distros, as I remember Rescatux worked magic. Search in distrowatch.com in data rescue category. These old tools will save your A$$.
Dualboot on one hard drive. is a choice for starters then other choices offered by other fellow users. And u have the choice to test things with and old drive, then mess up with different operations and see how these things work.
