I have a desktop with a 1 TB hard drive and a 240 GB SSD where the SSD is my boot drive (Windows 10 is installed in it already, with GPT partition in UEFI mode) and the hard drive is just a data drive. Now I want to install Fedora 30 (Dual boot) in the same SSD. But stuck with the process as there is no video tutorial is available regarding SSD dual boot. Is it possible to dual boot in the SSD?

  • It should not be any different than dual booting on a regular hard drive. – Davidw May 9 at 6:39
  • Yes, it's possible. Just install Fedora normally in UEFI. – Michael Hampton May 10 at 0:53
  • SSD was not allowing much space to be partitioned for installation. Anyways I used a 3rd party software to do the same. – Ayan Kumar Saha May 10 at 16:35

I just did this exact thing yesterday...

  1. Go to Windows Disk Managment and Shrink your voulme to make a new unpartitioned space. This is where your entire Fedora will go later.
  2. Create a bootable USB stick with Fedora 30 installation. This is extremly simple - download tool Rufus (my suggestion), download the Fedora Live Image ISO file. And once you start Rufus, just select that ISO for the Boot selection and click START.
  3. Reboot your machine and boot the USB stick
  4. Click "Install Fedora to Hard drive" and follow instruction. Automatic partitioning is good enough.
  5. Once it's finished, reboot and that's it. Boot loader is autmatically installed, you will be prompted to choose what to load: Fedora or Windows.
  6. And that's it :) Write if you get a problem..
  • Actually, there was a problem. When I tried to shrink the volume of my SSD, my windows was allowing only 10 GB of memory for installation. Anyways I used 3rd party software to make partition of 50 GB. – Ayan Kumar Saha May 10 at 16:32
