Can installer automatically create LUKS encrypted Fedora dual boot

I've done dual boot LUKS installs of Ubuntu alongside a preexisting Windows installation, but it wasn't automated and required a lot of command lines.

Will the latest Fedora live installer do a automated LUKS encrypted install onto a preexisting Windows drive giving me a working dual boot where Windows cant read the Fedora partitions?

I've done it on a Macbook so OSX rather than Windows and it worked fine, not sure what release I did it on, 23 maybe? If it worked back then the newest one should also.

Yes it will, however proceed with extreme caution and review all disk changes before accepting them. if anything seems off and likely to destroy your windows install post back here first for further guidance.

Thanks it did work fine, I think I had to create the EXT partition first but afterwards everything went well. Dual boot LUKS with Win 10 works perfect. Still feel a little uneasy about Windows sharing a physical drive with a secure OS but will do for now.

indeed /boot cannot be encrypted with LUKS, otherwise you wouldn't be able to access Fedora
