i wanted to know if it is necessary to install Freebsd on Primary drive of the Hard disk cant we install it on Logical drive,If we can install on Logical drive then does that drive needs to be created(partitioned) or left uncreated (non-partitioned).Im a new to Freebsd though i have try Slackware n Mandrake before.
if i install freebsd on primary partition and i have my winxp on logical partition after installation of freebsd do i need to re-install winxp as its boot record will be lost which will be in primary partition as i know or am i wrong?
Don't kid yourself XP system is in "C" and in a primary partition as confirmed by yourself but you can have the rest D, E......Z all in logical partitions. You can ask a system like XP to store data in a partition other than C. Every M$ system can do that since first Dos.
