Stipulations: you must find your windows boot partitions and label them for use in DI.
More to follow... So sleepy
OK, so with Jessie dual boot I had to launch windows and open up a cmd console and run:
In the disk part console:
sell disk 0
The partition formatted FAT32 is the windows boot partition.
My boot partition was number 2.
Now I had my boot partition labeled as "b".
I had to do this because the volume size listed after
was a bit smaller than the volume shown in Debian Installer partition manager, I had to make sure I knew this was the Windows boot partition during the install.
Now once the Debian installer launched the partition manager, I selected "manually manage partitions" and found the partition I had labeled.
I set this as the EFI boot partition and did NOT format it. This simply told GRUB to use this as the primary boot partition.
I formatted the remaining partitions as I normally would.
