Hi there, I had been a long time Linux user, and recently I decided to switch things up a bit and try out
Haiku. So far I have had a lot of fun with it, but running it through my VM causes a lot of problems… I
decided I want to dual-boot Haiku with Windows, but I’m not really sure where to start. Initially I wanted
to try dual-booting with Linux, but I found it was quite troublesome to do with GRUB, and there were a
few other problems using Linux regarding compatibility, so I thought I’d use Windows.
When I tried dual-booting it with Linux (Fedora 34 Workstation) I realized that using an UEFI system does seem to complicate things a bit… I tried following some of the documentation provided to get it to
work with GRUB, and set up Haiku for UEFI properly, but could not wrap my head around it… Either
way, I’ve now got myself a live USB containing both a Windows 10 ISO aswell as one with Haiku.
What is best to do? What is recommended? Can I just install Windows, split the partition, install Haiku
and get it to work with EasyBCD? Do I still have to mess with UEFI stuff if I take this approach? Maybe
do I have my initial install be Haiku, and install a boot manager from within Haiku? What can I expect,
and what do you think is the best approach, as I’m not really sure myself how I’d do this…
And also in case it’s relevant, I’m using a laptop with Nvidia Optimus and SSD (and of course UEFI).
Thanks in advance, Cheers!
