How to set up a dual boot Windows system in Robolinux Xfce Series 11
Please note: In order to build this Robolinux Xfce Series 11 Operating System Robo had to do this work for free for several months which made it impossible to support his family during that time period. Building solid Linux Operating Systems takes many many weeks of non stop back breaking eighteen hour days of meticulous hard work.
Make sure you have a backup of your existing data on your Windows machine. Most PC Users have a backup, if you don't then make a backup before you proceed!
2. CRITICAL! Defrag your Windows disk drive
Before you can set up a dual boot windows installation you need to defragment your Windows hard drive. This is a necessity thanks to the ancient Microsoft file system inside every Windows version which is 1980's DOS. If you do not defrag the disk drive then you will not have any real free space to install a 2nd operating system such as Robolinux. The fact is that all Windows versions carelessly spray your data into a sloppy mess all over your disk drive continuously. This is one of the many reasons why Windows runs so slowly. You also have to defrag your Windows hard disk regularly in order to get halfway reasonable read write speeds. So this is something you should be used to doing. When you have finished defragging your Windows drive then you can start the Robolinux installer.
Note: All Linux versions use a very modern file system that writes your data quickly and efficiently into compressed contiguous blocks which do not require time consuming defrag monkey business.This is one of the many reasons why Linux runs so much faster than Windows.
3. Follow these simple steps to install your dual boot Robolinux/Windows system easily & quickly
Download the Robolinux64 iso file to your PC or laptop. WARNING: There are no 32 bit Series 11 Versions. Note: If you don't know whether your PC or laptop has a 32 or 64 bit processor,
then simply google the make and model number to find out.
Burn the Robolinux.iso you downloaded to a DVD. Click the DVD if you need instructions on how to burn an iso image file onto a DVD
Put the Robolinux.iso you downloaded onto a USB Stick. Click the jet if you need instructions on how to put an iso image file onto a USB stick
In almost all cases Robolinux will find your Wifi driver so you can install it using Wifi. If not then be sure you are plugged into the internet with an ethernet cable on your router. Otherwise your installation will fail to use the network mirrors and you will not be able to install any drivers or software.
PLEASE READ THIS WARNING: All Robolinux series 11 versions DO NOT SUPPORT UEFI because it causes nothing but problems such as booting into a black screen with no Grub boot loader.
So you must turn off Secure Boot in your BIOS and set your BIOS to boot off of either a NON UEFI DVD or a NON UEFI USB depending on which one you are using to install Robolinux. Once you have done this, then you can insert your Robolinux64-xfce-v11.iso DVD or USB stick into your PC or laptop and reboot it.
When you boot off of a NON UEFI DVD your PC or laptop will automatically load this blue graphical Robolinux installer boot menu screen below.
DVD WARNING!: If you see any other screen when you boot up the Robolinux iso using a DVD that means your install will fail and it will NOT boot from Grub!
When YOU BOOT UP USING A USB STICK you should see the screen below. Please select the first option at the top of the screen which says: "Start Robolinux_11" and then press the return key. If you have turned off Secure boot in your BIOS and have booted off of a NON UEFI USB boot option then your installation will succeed.
When you have booted up into the Robolinux64 live Xfce version you will see this screen and then you can install Robolinux by double clicking on the "Install Robolinux_11" installer icon at the top left of the screen.
Select your language and click on continue.
Select your keyboard layout and click on the continue button
Please note that it is not necessary to select "Install 3rd-party software" as the Robolinux OS already has them in the iso file.
Please note: Normally the actual other operating system is Windows 7 or 10. This is a simulation done using Oracle VirtualBox which FAILS to allow you to install a dual boot Linux - Windows system.
You can select "Installing Robolinux_11 alongside your other Operating System" which is normally a Windows OS if you have already resized your existing partition, otherwise there will be no space to install Robolinux 11 as the second partition on your disk drive. If that is the case then please see the next screen below before you proceed.
If you select the "Something else" option on the screen below you can resize the existing partition. However since the Robolinux installer is using the Ubuntu Ubiquity Installer software which has been known to be unreliable, we highly recommend you abort the dual boot installation and use a disk partitioner such as GParted first. Or if your existing partition is a Windows partition then use the Windows partitioner first.
When you have resized your existing partition successfully then you will be ready to install a dual boot Robolinux system on your hard disk.
Click continue and your dual boot system will be installed.
Select your time zone by clicking on the country and city and press the continue button.
Enter your pertinent information and your password. When you are finished click on Continue.
Be certain to remember or write down your password for future reference.
This will also be your super user password "sudo" for Administrative access.
Robolinux is now installing. This process is quite fast. Normally just a few minutes.
Congratulations! Robolinux is now fully installed. It is time to restart your computer.
Please remove your DVD or USB stick and press enter.
Here is the Robolinux Grub boot screen for a non UEFI system. If you had installed a dual boot Windows - Linux system then you would see the multiple partitions in the below Grub boot menu options and could select either Windows or Linux to boot up.

Here is the Robolinux User Login screen. What you will see is YHWH's (That's our Father in Heaven's real name) original Otiot language on the top right side of the Robolinux Series 11 Xfce login screen that has been translated into English. By the way the name Yashua is Jesus' real name. There is no "J" in the Ancient Aramaic language. For those who are interested in the the truth feel free to contact Robo anytime and ask him for his greatest treasure which is an Otiot language pdf file. Robo will email you his greatest treasure for free anytime. If you want to change this login screen then simply use the Settings options in the Xfce control center.
