    Can you make an installation partition in the boot partition


    Hi guys

    I would like to know if there should be any problems with extending the boot partition (the first little 500 Mb) to f.x. 5.Gb and then make this partition into a recovery partition eventually with some other tools like LSoft Active@ bootdisk etc.

    I am using the EasyBCD as my bootloader tool.

    There may not be anything wiped out or missing from the Windows partition. But the install USB will let you boot to see if everything can be fixed or not. The System partition is separate from the Windows/Boot partition, which makes it possible to fix without
    losing Windows, Apps and data.

  3. DualBooting Gentoo Linux with Windows 10

    GPT partitioning scheme is suitable for disks that are 2 TBs or larger in size.

    All you need to do is boot from the Windows 10 install media, then select the unallocated partition during setup.

    This will likely make your Linux partitions inaccessible.

    You can download the free EasyBCD which you can use to add Gentoo Linux to the Windows 10 boot manager.

    Can you make an installation partition in the boot partition

    As long as it is legacy booting and MBR, you shouldn't have any problems at all:

    Thanks for your fast reply.

    Looks cool *Cool

    I tried to have my recovery partition in the end of my HD, but when I installed different numbers of OS'es my bootloader was f.... up.

    I would like to have a recovery/installation partition with. f.x. Windows 7, Windows 10 and other installation ISO's. And of course all my bootable tools like LSoft Active@ Bootdisk, EaseUS Partition Master, Norton Antivirus etc.

    The only way I have found to do the same thing on a UEFI system is to have a separate partition for each item that you want to boot into and use the bios selection menu to choose what to boot into. Of course that isn't a real problem because a GPT disk can have more than 4 partitions.

    Hmm - totally new user in this forum
    ... and with this thread-system *Redface

    I am either so familiar with UEFI, and legacy booting etc.

    I have an old Lenovo T400 I am using when I am testing different software - and installations. I don't know it has UEFI booting.
