Re: Install Windows 8 OEM as additional OS
What can happen? Potentially, and likely, Windows will replace the existing OS and leave you Fedora-less. Back in the XP days, as I recall, you could get XP to install to /dev/sda2 for example, if you knew how. Then you could just reinstall GRUB and go about your business. These days I believe the scenario is totally different. I would plan on backing up Fedora, then create a few partitions on the disk, planning on installing W8 to /dev/sda1 and Fedora to dev/sda2. Install W8 first.
* Disclaimer: Haven't touched Window 8 yet so I've no idea what will happen here. My statements are based on past Windows experience.
