This is a sample video showing how to install RHEL 7 in Legacy Mode and Dual Boot with Windows Server 2008 R2 Step1: Make some space for installing RHEL 7 in Windows Step2: Boot RHEL 7 Installatio…



  1. The UUID for my Windows boot partition wouldn’t show up with the command you provided, so I had to look up a different command to list UUID’s. Otherwise, this guide worked perfectly!! Thank you!!!

  2. Worked as written for windows server 2016 r2 and redhat 7.3. My user had a windows 2016 system in place and then wanted linux. Since it only had a single raid 0 disk in place, the only optino was to shrink the windows partition, then perform all the changes in this document… rebuild grub and it worked! Thanks for saving me time and headaches…

    Note: when i chose the new partitions i created a simple partition on the windows side, unformatted and no drive letter as the linux installer didn't see it without this. In the installer there is an option top format the new partition which i did for the boot using ext4. thats the only difference I think in how i completed this versus the video.

  3. Hello sir. I dual booted windows 7 and RHEL 7.3.. Your procedure worked perfectly well but then if i boot into windows, i cannot see GRUB again in next boot and system auto boots into windows.. I can only see GRUB as long as I use RHEL 7.3… Can you help me to solve this

  4. I've followed all of your steps..but while creating create partition automatically in i will configure partitioning option i get an error of "you have not defined any root partition" me to solve this…thanks in advance 🙂
