I'm looking for some pointers on the best way to convert my OS to Fedora. I'm looking to do a clean install and not a dual boot. I intend on running VMWare once I've got Fedora installed and running a P2V image of my windows 7 install in there.
I have a Sony VAIO VPCF11C5E and I'm looking to completely replace the Windows 7 install with Fedora14. I've simply had enough of windows. We use Fedora at work for development and it seems remarkably stable.
I've been using Linux for about 2 months and am comfortable with doing installs.
My plan of action is to just take a P2V image of my windows 7 install, clean install Fedora, install VMWare. I'll then use Fedora for development stuff and the P2V for referencing 'legacy' material.
Well that's a very important notice John W.
Actually I did not know that since I don't bother my self anymore with other distros: I am satisfied with my Slackware and fBSD. Take note on that wise advice NewbieLnx, and I'm sorry I did not have that information at hand.
