Question Dual boot TrueOS and Windows 10 GPT UEFI
#1
Hi,
I've read the docs on the website about installing TrueOS but there's still one issue I'm not sure about and couldn't find an answer for in the forum. I'm going to install TrueOS alongside Windows 10 on UEFI laptop with GPT partitions. The questions:

- Can the BSD boot manager load the Windows 10 bootloader?
- I don't want to use GRUB anyway, so in case the answer to the above question is no I'm going to use rEFInd, but does the TrueOS installer overwrite the windows 10 boot manager then?

Thanks

Best ask over at http://discourse.trueos.org

also read, https://www.trueos.org/handbook/install....al-booting

from my understanding, using UEFI boot, and TrueOS uses has rEFInd as well, not TrueOS will not overwrite the windos stuff
