Windows 7: dualboot with fed16 win7 error: unable to install on selected location

14 May 2012   #1

Fedora 16
dualboot with fed16 win7 error: unable to install on selected location

I have two disks:
1 = 250 GB, all linux partitions
2 = 250 GB, will be allocated to Windows 7 (NTFS partitions)

I have Fedora16 installed on disk0 because I only used Fedora. But since I'm a PHP programmer who programs in DOT.NET at times too I need windows installed too. I tried to install Visual Studio in a virtual machine too but the result was disapointing because it was too slow. That is why I want to create a dual boot with windows 7 now but I do not want to have to reinstall Fedora.

Now, I have tried to install Windows 7 but I get this error: "Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300024." The error occors when I try to choose a partition to install windows on.

Does anyone know how to prefend this, without having to remove linux and install linus after windows?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I'll post the link from our tutorial database, but it assumes Windows 7 is already installed, so I'm not sure whether it'll help you.

Fedora 16

I know how to do it the other way around (installing linux after windows). but that is what I need to prefend cause that would mean reinstalling fedora too
