I have a lenovo thinkpad that I just bought that has windows 10 pre-installed. I’m trying to install F34 so that the laptop is dual boot.
I used windows disk manager to shrink the main partition so that I have space on the disk to install Fedora.
When I’m going through the Fedora installer, I get to the section where you select the destination for the installation, I’m reading different suggestions in various install guides. I’ve read some that say to use the Automatic Configuration, and that it will find the empty disk space and use it appropriately. I’ve seen others that suggest that the Automatic Configuration will use the entire disk and remove windows.
I’ve tried using the Blivet-GUI to specify how to use the partition, but I get errors when I try to accept the changes. So, I was hoping that the Automatic Configuration might be an option to set things up appropriately, but I’m a little gun-shy about hitting that “Begin Installation” button given the conflicting information I’ve read.
Will the ‘automatic configuration’ use the whole disk, or just the free space on the disk?
