Lots of guys are coming up to me asking how to dual boot Fedora 13 and
Win (XP/7/Vista) on their systems. I guide them to manually partition
their drives during Installation and have a separate free space for
creating ext and swap partitions so as to avoid any hassles during
installation. However many people are coming with just a SINGLE
partition on the whole disk, having Windows and wish to install
Fedora. The Fedora 13 installation is having a 'shrink' feature as I
see. I tried it on a Windows VM in VirtualBox but it erased Windows
and installed Fedora.
This should be reported esp if it can be reproduced in a physical
machine. Otherwise gparted should work fine. As always recommend
backups before doing installations or upgrades.
