windows installation on red hat preloaded machine??????

Not open for further replies.



i have recently got a PC with Red Hat loaded in it. well, i want to install windows also into it.

i have heard that red hat and others can be loaded only by first loading or loaded windows OS and then red hat, not the other way round. so, i wanted to confirm this:::

is it possible to load windows without having to format my red hat directly. ?????????



no ..the thing is linux can detect whether windows is installed
but windows will not detect linux

i MAY be wrong .. thats we ask ppl to post in the right section
in this case ... OPEN SOURCE

hence im moving it there.

You can install windows after installing linux, if you have space on your hard disk.
No problem with that. I have done that myself too. But, the problem that will arise is that windows will overwrite the MBR so you will need to reinstall GRUB/LILO. That will be very simple.
Here's how you can restore GRUB - Resore GRUB.
Have a look here too.
