Dual Boot Question
Ok, I have read the tutorial and watched the video, reloaded my Vista, now here is what I have
This is what I have:
aufs on / type aufs (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/sda1 type vfat (rw,noatime,quiet,umask=0,check=s,shortname=mixed) Not sure what this is
/dev/sda2 on /mnt/sda2 type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other,blksize=4096) Recovery Partation
/dev/sda3 on /mnt/sda3 type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other,blksize=4096) Vista OS is here
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/sdb1 type vfat (rw,noatime,quiet,umask=0,check=s,shortname=mixed)
/dev/sdb2 on /mnt/sdb2 type ext2 (rw,noatime)
The Video shows only one partation then he divides that,
as you can see I have (3) that Vista uses, is this going to be a problem, also how much space does The real install BT3 Need?
The real bt install needs 2.7 gigs but of course you'll want some space so I say 4 to 5 min. If you can follow the dual boot video depends on if the 2 recovery and bios partitions are primary or logical. You are are supposed to only have 4 primary partitions.
So you have 3 options. If those first 2 partitions are logical you are good to go just resize th part vista is on and change all the sda numbers accordingly.
Option 2 which is what I did with my machine was I wiped the hole drive and reinstalled vista by forcing it all on to a premade partition and not letting it create the recovery partition. I did this with a recovery disc from a torrent and then used my legit serial #
Option 3 is to create a partition for bt and just dump the whole install on one partition instead of having the kernel and boot files on the other partition.
Would this be the same thing as a USB install like your Video?
or could I chang the two to Logical with Accronics Disk Program?
