windows 8 dual boot
Posted on 2013-06-25
I have no experience with hardware. I am very lost here. I am looking for very detailed answers, not just a link you googled. If your answer is not very detailed, please do not answer. Sorry for this disclaimer, but I am spending way too much time messing around with this. * I am not looking to use some other sort of hyper-v, vmware, virtual box, etc....
Has anyone setup a dual boot with Windows Server 2008 and Windows 8?
1. If so, what are the requirements for the disk (GPT/MBR)? I don't know what either means, but it seems to be relevant.
2. Can I put my new os on the same disk, different partition as my current setup? If so, does my current os partition have to be in a special format? What format, and if it is not, do I need to use another disk? I don't want to touch my current os.
3. Is UEFI relavent? Not really sure what this is for, but if it matters, how can I check if it is there? Should I turn it off/on if it isn't? Will this matter for other reasons?
