    Here's a question for all of the dual booters. I had linux installed on my laptop then deleted the linux OS. The partition is still there, it has not been resized by Windows at all and I would like to put linux back on it without having to format. Has anyone done this sucessfuly? And if so, could you tell me what you did?

    Thanks.

    it would be best to have your linux partition as your last system partition, as you may know, it also has its own boot manager. But I would recommend always installing linux last on a drive

    so you are saying that it is better to install linux after any other operating system that you would want to dual boot? i'm new to installing multiple OS's, how do i go about installing it with multiple OS's? Or is that explained on a linux builds webpage?
