Dual boot Fedora 27 with OSX on an iMac


I want to set up my iMac to dual boot with Fedora 27 and OSX 10.13. I read a procedure that was tested on a Mac without Boot Camp Assistant. Since OSX is installed with Boot Camp Assistant, I don't have that choice. Will Boot Camp Assistant itself (I have not used it, so my iMac is currently running only OSX) cause any problems, or should I be able to follow the procedure in the linked document?

If you'd like to dual-boot your system, then following the how-to guides is the way you can do it. Not sure why you ask, since you've obviously looked up how to dual-boot your mac, and have found the official instructions for doing so.

ANY procedure can damage your system if you don't do it right...if you're looking for 100% safety, then don't do it.

I was questioning whether just having Boot Camp Assistant, without using it, would cause problems. I'm assuming that it won't.
