  1. Is it possible to native boot a vhdx after dual booting linux?


    I want to install linux on a separate nvme and still boot natively to vhdx's that I will add to the windows boot manager with one normal windows on a separate nvme. Is this possible or does grub completely replace the windows boot manager altogether.

    :)

  2. Is it possible to native boot a vhdx after dual booting linux?

    Just to clarify, you are using easy bcd to add the linux entry to the windows boot manager or you have installed linux with grub as the manager and that forwards the windows vhdx entries to the windows boot manager. It would help greatly if you put the quick order of your steps that I can follow, like:
    1. Add vhdx entries to windows boot
    2. install linux like a normal dual boot with grub.
    or does the order not even matter and you can add entries at any time and grub picks them up.

    Win 10.VHDX native boot....with linux as well?

    Wondering if this is at all possible. I use Hyper-V and am very impressed of the native boot performance, would it be at all possible to native boot a linux virtual drive.

    For example, in UEFI I have Windows 10 on my physical drive as option 1, and windows 10 on a virtual drive as option 2. Can I also have the 3rd option of linux as a VHDX?
