I’m not an expert in installation and I don’t mean to be, but I think it could be useful sharing my efforts in make, Netrunner and Windows 10, works togheter in the same PC with a UEFI bios (not legacy) and 2 disks with a GPT table of partitions.
After a long struggle I decided that the best way to make the two System to live togheter without any problem inside the same PC is:
1- use two hdd, one for Nrunner and one for Win
2- During the first installation (normally Windows) please disconnect one the disks from the motherboard, after that be sure the disk you’ve chosen is the first (sda0)
3- As soons as the installation is finished, disconnect the disk you have just used and riconnect the othe, always like the first disk.
4- Install Netrunner (or a different distro if you like) and, as you’ve completed the process reconnect the second disk. I think as a second on the motherboard.
5- Doing so you’ll have availabel two operative system completely indipendent without each with a boot partition reserved: windows boot manager in the window’s hdd and grub in the second.
6- I know it wil be impossible to load windows from grub but you’ll be able to do what you llike in a single disk avoiding boot problems in case, for example, whe you update Linux or Windows or you have to reinstall one of the systems in case of trouble…
7- Pay attention! You motherboard and bios have to have the possibility to choose, before the automatic boot, which loader you prefer in order to have Linux or Windows.
8- All the modern motherboards provide that possibilty pressing a key before or during the boot. Foir example my board makes available the selection pressing F8.
Ok… As a newby like I am, I hope and I like to know about your experiences and how you solved you problems in situetions like mine…
So told, as soon as Linux and the wonderful Netrunner will be as good as windows for the games, I think we’ll can forget windows completely!! … Unfortunately my PES2016 needs windows to work properly!!
