Windows 10 Triple Boot Support??

Would be nice to have support for Windows 10 in Triple Boot configurations with Ubuntu Linux and Mac OS-X.

For Cheese Graters (Mac Pro Towers) having multiple drives, it would be nice to be able to install Windows 10 on a native GPT disk without any of that hybrid MBR/GPT configuration that seems to have some stability problems. Would be nice to do that with Linux too, if it supports it.

(I hope I'm using the right terms here.)

Re: Windows 10 Triple Boot Support??

DeployStudio does not support UEFI bootcamp (yet).
all workflows I looked at are designed to use the hybrid MBR/GPT boot.
But I would not be surprised that if you manage to image the EFI partition manually/scripted, it may be deployable. (similar as the recovery partition is treated)
I would really like to see what is possible and not...
But I doubt of the makers of DeployStudio have to time to make this work (keeping in mind that the number of users that use this setup is very low)
I am not sure if the EFI boot files are hardware specific or not (in other words, if sysprep is required or not) I hope not.


Keep an eye on the blog of the maker of WinClone, his remarks may help you.

And a useful tool for multiboot is rEFInd (successor of rEFIt) http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/

I have played with this tool once, but cannot give you real answers , but I hope others can... :-)

Re: Windows 10 Triple Boot Support??

I would think that UEFI bootcamp would quickly become the default configuration for anyone wanting to do a double or triple boot configuration with Windows as one of the boot options? Still thanks for all the help.
