    Linux with w10 - alternative methods?


    Is this a fair summary of the possible ways to use Linux on a machine with w10 already installed ? w10p 1909 build (up-to-date), digital license, MS Account linked, single user. Option 1: With w10 shutdown use a Linux live bootable usb and operate the Linux system only from usb. Option 2: With w10 shutdown use a Linux live bootable usb and then do a full install from usb. Allow Linux to shrink w10 partitions and create its own and use Grub loader. Set choice of timed out defaults in Grub when presented with first machine boot screen. Option 3: With w10 shutdown and a second drive available. Do full install but change the location of the Grub loader and then use BCD to find Grub and present a blueBox option to boot either Windows or Linux. As per this post ...page 3 ... How can I move windows 10 boot files to another drive to allow linux Option 4: As per option 3 but do not use BCD. Instead use the bios boot options to enable a boot-from list with a function key and select from that. I have previously used the full install on Windows drive with Grub and also the second drive version with grub. Currently on just usb live only, but leaning towards option 3 or 4. As I have not used BCD before ... would welcome opinions.

    Guide: How to enable, use, and configure SLI on Linux.

    I guess the next logical step would be to report on the performance you can get with SLI in Linux. That'd be my suggestion anyway.
