Please tell me that following steps will help me in installing Kali Linux dual boot with windows?
- If I have 500GB and windows is taking all of it. I will create 100GB for Kali Linux by shrinking C.
- After that a 100GB will be as unallocated space.
- I'll boot into kali linux (through USB) and choose Graphical Install.
- In partition disks section, I'll choose Manual and click on Continue.
- Then it will show me 2 or 3 partitions (one will have 400GB and the other will have 100GB). I'll choose the 100GB.
- After it will ask me that how to use this space. I will choose Automatically partition the free space instead of choosing create new partition. I hope that choose automatically partition the free space won't ask me anything to enter amount for swap etc.
- After those steps, It will show me Yes and No options...
The main question is in 6th point that is, If I choose automatically partition the free space. Then It will do everything automatically in that 100GB? like creating swap etc. It's so confusing if I do it manually that's why I am asking.
I want that windows will be on 400GB partition and the linux will be on 100GB partition and it should automatically manage the partition for linux.
I was reading an article regarding to Dual booting kali with windows 7. In that the author chose NO option at the GRUB Boot loader to the master boot record. But I think I should choose YES.
The author after choosing NO, manually typed
/dev/sda5 in device for boot loader section.
By default, the installer will want to install GRUB, the boot loader, in the Master Boot Record (MBR). However, for setting up this dual-boot system, we want GRUB in the boot partition. So, select “No.” Continue.
I don't think that Choosing YES will cause any problem. In that way too it will ask me to boot into the OS i want then Why I should follow the one shown in the article (of that author) and make everything confusing
Please tell me that by following the above steps, I'll be able to install kali linux dual boot with windows or there will be any problem ?
