I intend to re-install Fedora 20 on a new computer as I am having a lot of trouble with the installation done by the vendor of the computer. It is a dual boot machine with a small Windows XP3 partition for things I cannot do in Linux (mainly proprietary software for electronic devices)
It may be my fault fumbling things that has caused the problems, but anyway I want to re-install it from the official DVD. My question is: can I just accept the automatic partitioning, will it preserve the existing partitions, and will the dual boot Grub still work?
I have no data stored on the new machine: all that was backed up on separate hard drives from the old one, and I have done no permanent work on the new one.
