I'm a primary Windows user, but sometimes in need of using Linux. For now I used Fedora installed on pendrive, but now I'd like to have dual boot solution with Windows.
The thing is, that I'm using BitLocker to encrypt all hard drives. Configuration is as below:
Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 119 GB 0 B
Disk 1 Online 931 GB 0 B *
Disk 2 Online 2794 GB 0 B *
I'd like to install Fedora on Disk 2 (that would be sdc) which has following partitions:
Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Reserved 128 MB 17 KB
Partition 2 Primary 2794 GB 129 MB
But that disk is also encrypted.
To test all things I've set up a virtual machine (sda - windows drive, sdb - second drive).
But when trying to install Fedora to sdb using automatic partitioning with 20 GB free) I'm getting error (see screen):
sdb may not have enough space for grub2 to embed core.img when using ext4 file system on partition
If I don't install bootloader (but create /boot partition), Fedora will install and Windows will boot normally. However, after adding boot entry to windows boot manager pointing to /boot a grub command line will start but will not boot Fedora.
Is there a way to install Fedora with boot loader or
to add Fedora to grub after installation without boot loader?
I do not want to overwrite Windows boot loader (grub -> windows_boot_loader) but rather have something like this: windows_boot_loader -> grub -> fedora
