Way back when and I couldn’t afford more than one computer I would dual boot. Windows XP and Linux and later Win7 and Linux. Some time back I gained the luxury of having multiple computers around me in my home office. At this point, I stopped dual booting as I have the hardware to run multiple configurations. Well, things have changed, I’m back to a single desktop PC and a now very old Laptop.
In a perfect world, I would be happy to run Linux 24/7, I have tried and failed badly. Like an old junky, I need my fix of Redmond’s finest from time to time. I would be most happy spending 90% of my time in Linux and 10% on Windows. I’m not smart enough for VfIO, the proper answer for my use case is dual booting.
I have heard that Windows 10 does not play well with dual-booting systems, is this true? Can I just slap Linux on a second drive and expect it to work. Most importantly can the dual boot survive Win10’s biannual big update?
Most if not all of the time I was dual booting it was pre-UEFI am I going to run into problems?
I would prefer to not have to clean install Windows 10, just shuffle some drives about, or just add one. Then once there is the space slap Linux USB in and let it do its thing. Using Grub to handle the boot time selection.
Or, would it be better to rely on the BIOS drive selection/boot order at POST so Win10 boot is not interfered with at all?
