i am seeking some suggestions, possibly a solution, for dual boot or triple boot my laptop. i have a dell inspiron ( 3GB, 500GB,i5) with windows 7 on it. Now i am thinking to have fedora 16 and BT5 R2 on it.
what i am thinking is to have fedora on disk and BT on vmware that too on windows.
I need fedora to enhance my skills with scripting and BT for what it is designed for. Will someone suggest me, what would be the best thing to do ??
you can try PARTITION MAGIC to dual-boot WIN and Fedora, its easy and user-friendly. but I suggest you to learn about it carefully from any sources before you damaged your important data. Please back up important data before you playing around with partition magic or alike
after you have dual boot. you can install VirtualBox on WIN and then install or just run BackTrack 5 LIVE cd from VirtualBox. If you wish, you can install VirtualBox on Fedora instead on WiN.
Install Fedora, Install Grub2 to your MBR, Install Grub Customizer to Fedora, From Fedora Run customizer it will detect all your OSs. Select what you want displayed in the boot menu using the checkmarks hit save and reboot. Then install VB and BT in Windoze. Or do a tripple boot with BT.
