What are the steps to partition an HD if I want to install openSUSE, like GNOME or KDE, when I already have Windows installed? Also, how do I install the repositories after installation?

Steps to partition an HD if I want to install openSUSE

It is very simple. If you have installed windows first then you can easily create a separate partition with enough space to install opensuse package in it.

  • Go to disk management in your Windows.
  • Here if you have any "unallocated space" then make a separate partition from it.
  • If you have no space then shrink one of your drives by right click on them and shrink them. Define the size in MBs.
  • Once done create a separate partition from the space you got after shrinking.
  • Do not put anything else in that drive.
  • Insert the installation disk of opensuse.
  • select that drive which you just made by following the above steps.
  • Proceed to the installation.

After the installation is done every time you boot your computer, it will ask you whether you want to boot in windows or opensuse.
