I have machine with windows 7 installed and full disk encryption using TrueCrypt. I’m wondering if there is a way to install linux next to windows but without reinstaling everything and loosing data?
On normal machines without truecrypt I’ve done it like that:
- shrink windows partition
- create new partition from free space
- install linux on new partition
But I don’t know if it is a good way of doing it with true crypt.
Partition tools cannot change the size of TrueCrypt partitions. You have to unencrypt the partition, then make your partition changes, then re-encrypt the now smaller partition.
