    Use the windows disk management tool to shrink a windows partition and free up enough unallocated disk space for fedora. On a new computer I'm usually able to shrink the windows ntfs partition by 50%. Also identify how your machine is partitioned and how it boots (gpt/uefi/mbr/secure boot)

    that means your Windows 10 is installed to a MBR partition scheme but you booted the install media in EFI mode. boot the Fedora install media in non-EFI mode using the boot menu of your computer. look for the entry without EFI or UEFI infront of it.

    I have setup in the boot menu UEFI. I see one more message after I try to install manually.

    Thank you x 100! You solved my problem for me and I didn't even have to ask. I appreciate the add.

    Kamil,

    Here is what worked for me. I had to first disable USB UEFI, then I went and reordered the boot order moving USB/Floppy CD (Legacy) to the top.

    Hope this helps,

    czar

    Re: Dual boot Fedora 29 alongside with Windows 10

    I just setup Fedora 29 KDE on my windows 10 box to dual boot ==I have it on a different partition, on a separate disk --- now it is the default os when machine starts up, and I must manually select Windows 10 at startup ?dev/sda1 ...

    Is there a way to edit the start menu so Windows 10 is default starting OS ? BTW - I love Fedora !

    THX,

    Bill Clark

    Re: Dual boot Fedora 29 alongside with Windows 10

    Assuming a UEFI install of both OS's, there are two ways to get W10 to boot first.

    1) Modiffy the grub2 boot menu to select Windows as the default boot entry instead of Fedora. Should be many guides on the web, as well as several threads on this forum discussing that method.

    2) In Fedora, use the efibootmgr program to rearrange the boot order in the UEFI firmware, putting Windows as the first entry. Also many threads on this forum discussing that.

    For modifying the grub2 boot menu, start by posting the output of this command:
    Code:
    sudo grep menuentry /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg | cut -s -d"'" -f2
    That will reveal the "names" of the menu entries, and you can use the "name" of the Windows entry to set windows as the default in the /etc/default/grub file.

    GRUB_DEFAULT="<full_name_found_in_the_menu_entry>"

    Then rebuild the grub2 menu with
    Code:
    $ sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

    Also see references for setting the grub2 menu default from here.
    This discusses the grub2-set-default command. Typically, the Windows entry will be "Windows Boot Manager something"

    Re: Dual boot Fedora 29 alongside with Windows 10

    Thank you for suggestions ..

    So - I spent some time reading through the Fedora docs onGrub2 process, and there are many moving parts, it seems. Cannot get such a clear picture (as I could for say Samba setup) - I don't know why I cannot get it.

    I am quite scared of trashing the startup. (I remeber trashing a fstab file once ... )
    Going to wimp out and ask if anyone knows of a decent graphical program to adjust boot order ... I tried Grub2 Editor, but could not build the package ...
