Installing Win7 on Hard Disk from Fedora 26

asked 2017-09-10 17:03:25 -0500

I need to create a permanent boot option for Win7 from Fedora 26. I have a Win7 pro .iso. I assume it is difficult to do what I want here due to a lack of forums about it.. Proven methods are greatly appreciated.

Generally you boot the windows install media.

Well you best option will be to create a virtual machine and install Win7 inside it, and use it as virtual machine, if you install Windows 7 because the way Windows install works will remove Grub and you will lose the option to boot into Fedora, then you will have to re install Fedora.

You do NOT need to re-install Fedora, you need to reinstall grub to the MBR

OP never says whether he is booting UEFI or Grub, so installing Win 7 as dual boot, may not even involve grub. Need more information as to his system, to determine a pertinent course of action.
