Has any one tried to duel boot with Windows 8 developer? Have tried the tools in PCLinuxOS and Gparted for re-sizing. Is the file structure different enough in Windows 8 that the current partition managers can not handle it? Or is it just a hardware problem of mine. I disconnected my two SATA hard drives from my motherboard. Hard drive 0 has PCLinuxOS KDE & Windows 7. Hard drive 1 has PCLinuxOS LXDE & XP. Connected a IDE hard drive (only spare drive I have) on the only IDE connector on the mother board. Installed Windows 8 then tried to re-size the partition and found out that I can not do it. Motherboard is a Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3, with 4 gigs of RIPJAW DDR3, and a Phenom II x4 40 processor. Hard drive is a Seagate 250623A. This hard drive has had XP and PCLinuxOS on it before in a much older PC. Any ideas as to why it wont re-size?
I fix and rebuild laptops and desk tops for many friends and coworkers and am trying to get used to Windows 8 before they bring it to me. Some times they even let me install PClinuxOS. Best idea I have right now is to format the hard drive, split it into partitions install Windows 8 then install PCLinuxOS. That still leaves GRUB to make its home. Wonder how that will work. Even if that works not a good idea to install on freinds and coworkers machines that way. I know it is early days yet. That you for looking and being kind by not flaming or bashing. BASH commands are ok though.
