KACE Product Support Question


Linux/Windows dual boot deployment with K2000

02/20/2013 2933 views

I am in the process of trying to have KACE install Windows 7 on a seperate partition from Linux which is already installed. We have 81gb seperated to accomadate the windows partition. Grub is being used as the bootloader.

I currently have this DISKPART script so far but it overrights the grub.

select volume 0
select disk 2
clean
create partition primary size=100
assign letter="D"
active
create partition primary
assign letter="C"
exit

Well, the windows installer always recreates the MBR new, and it does not recgonize the grub.

So you need to reinstall grub installation.

But you can run bcdedit afterwards to start your Linux from the BCD.

This how to could be helpful
