Should be able to if just partitioned and not formatted. It is better to fdisk with the installer program during install though.

fdisk will only create partitions. The lInux installer will see the partition and set up the file system. As the previous reply suggests, all that is really required is the the disk have enough empty (unpartitioned) space. The installer will do the rest..

By the way, welcome to LQ.
