Partition manager for installation media

  • Hello!

    I have Win10 operating system and I want to install on the other partition LibreElec os. But on installation prompt LibreElec has only option to swipe all HDD. Is there any possibility to install it without swiping all files.

    I don't want to reinstall win 10 because of slow internet connection, it takes one full day to download and install all updates.

  • You could manually partition, install a bootloader and set it up to boot LibreELEC. This requires advanced knowledge of how to boot Linux. There's some dual-boot howto's here and there if you search.

  • I'd advise against creating other partitions on your same hard drive. Either use a spare hard drive or just install LibreELEC on as USB stick and run from that.
