14:03 dotplus So. am just coming back to linux on the desktop after >10 years on OSX. I have a new thinkpad t460 with a windows install that I need to retain but want to dual boot with archlinux. I shrunk the windows partition/fs, have successfully completed almost all the arch install and am asking about bootloader-fu. I don't know about UEFI because that wasn't a thing back when I actually installed OSen last. So
14:03 dotplus here's my goal, to have: boot from USB ...
14:03 dotplus ... stick if present, otherwise boot to arch by default with the option to pick windows. the questions: 1) which bootloader do I want? grub? 2) where do I install it? 3) Do I need to provide additional config or are the defaults good enough? Details: Partition/fs layout @ http://imgur.com/a/IY1DE and bios boot order @ http://imgur.com/a/IsSl8
21:10 pdurbin dotplus: man, I don't want to steer you wrong but I think grub is up to the task.
21:13 bene i haven't multi-booted with EFI unfortunately
21:15 bene but all the centos 6 and centos 7 EFI-based systems i have use grub
22:06 dotplus answering myself: 1) yeah, GRUB 2) the EFI partition 3) arch does a grand job
22:06 dotplus [15:45]
22:06 dotplus However, this drive had a McAfee Encrypted EFI partition, so grub/arch installer (even the ubuntu installer which I expect to be the best at DWIM and Just Working) couldn't installed the efi binary. So I blew the whole thing away and started from scratch. :nuke: windows
22:06 dotplus I'll put it in a VM later, that should be enough.
22:06 dotplus [15:46]
22:06 dotplus ^ was my response in another channel
22:24 bene i have a work dell xps 13 that came with ubuntu
22:24 bene but fedora 25 runs better on it actually
