How to Install OpenSUSE on a Existing Partition - Please Help
Posted on 2009-05-15
Hi I need to install OpenSUSE for my coursework I only have a laptop Which is a Dell... I downloaded OpenSUSE DVD from their site the 4.xGB one "NOT" the Live CD when I tried to install it said on the installation screen in RED colour that it will delete all my stuff Windows and the Recovery because it can't resize it or something like that now obviously I would not want that because I do not have the recovery disks its all on the HD...
I do however on my LAPTOP have a Partition of 70GB on my Laptop which I could Split into to as many needed...
So what am asking for a someone to spare some time for me on this and kinda of write the steps I should do in order to install OpenSUSE on the Partition and not mess up my windows etc..
This is what my Disk Looks like right now:
C: OS - NTFS (System Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
D: Recovery - NTFS (Primary Partition)
E: 70GB - NTFS (Primary Partition) - THIS IS THE PARTITION I want to install OpenSUSE on.
Please if some expert could provide me with the correct steps to install this I really need this University Campus is closed on Saturday/Sundays and Uni Library does not have Linux and I need to hand in my coursework on Monday I just have a little bit of changes left to do.
Please don't point me towards OpenSUSE site that shows the partition installation it did not make sense to me at all or say read a bit about it before installing it everyone keeps saying that I am really short on time and desperate.. please provide me with the correct steps I would really appreciate it. Thank you
PS: Please remember I don't know anything about linux installations all I know is how to use it based on the teachings for Computer Science(Design Workshop)
