I wish to remove Win7 (32 bit Home Edition) and install Oracle Linux 5.8 in it.
Configuration of my workstation :
1. 4GB RAM
2. 500 GB HDD
3. Intel Core i5 processor (2.27 GHz * 2).
Could you please tell me how to install the this ? Also, please suggest a good anti-virus for it. Also, is VM required to be installed before installing Oracle Linux ?
If you want to remove the existing Windows installation and replace it with Oracle Linux any other operating system, then a vm is not requried. A vm is required to create the new OS as a vm, which runs as a task under the host OS.
