I have just bought a pc with Windows 7 pre-installed and I want to partition and install debian on the drive. If I use the debian installer's partitioner, what precautions do I have to take in order not to damage the Windows partition?
I would suggest using jkdefraggui to move all Windows 7 files to the front of the disk, before doing any partitioning work, to help reduce the risk of messing up the Windows 7 installation.
Thanks, Mark for the pointer. I will give it a try.
