I was under the impression I could dual boot from a single drive. If I have to partition, I could get on that.
Would I then have to make a 3rd partition for all the apps I wanted to sh are between both operating systems?
No...I haven't. I still need to make the partition...I'm unsure as to how to make it. For now, it barely boots to Linux. But then it just freezes with a blank, grey bar at the bottom.
