I have a standard NC10 still running XP. I would like to instal Linux Zorin Lite along side XP dual boot.
I would like to install Zorin lite on the D partition which is 72Gb and 63.8% free space. Just some recovery solution files taking up some space.
Can anyone tell me how to do this or give me some advice please
There are some instructions here
It’s for Mint but Zorin may well be similar but check on their website to be sure
Remember to back up all the files you don’t want to loose, just in case
Note that recovery solution will not work when dual booting
Hope this helps and let us know how you get on
Do I have to shrink the Xp partition with some partioning program or can I just tell Zorin to install in the free space of the D partition that was created by the NC10 on day one ?
You could point the installation to the D: drive and it should utilise the spare space.
At the same time it should sort out the dual booting.
let us know how it goes.
Don’t forget the backups!
Hope this helps
