28814Dual boot Vista/Ubuntu on Precision M4300
- Sep 16, 2007Hi all,
I plan the purchase of a Precision M4300. While the main OS still will
be Linux, I plan to keep the Vista installation on the device.
I plan to boot into Vista and to repartition the drive with the built in
Vista tool. But what I've seen in the internet, it eventually does not
allow to shrink the c: partition to a size I want it to.
Thus my question: if I have to partition the device with other tools,
I'll surely need to reinstall Vista. Will this be possible with the CDs
provided by Dell? Will Vista registration be a problem after
reinstalling? Will I need to reinstall all drivers under Vista or are
those already included in the Dell disk image?
Sometimes I heard that it was not possible to boot Vista using GRUB but
also heard success stories.
Dell provides Ubuntu installation discs. Should I prefer those over
plain Ubuntu discs?
Thanks a bunch & best regards,
