Machine Description

I have a six year old desktop machine from Pogo Linux (my hostname: "Pogo2011"). The machine has been running Ubuntu since it was new and is now at 16.04.2 LTS. The machine has an AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 450 Processor, 64 bit, 8 GB RAM, and two 500 GB SATA hard disks. One drive contains the OS and the other, my own data files.

How To dual boot, triple boot or multiboot Linux with Windows in a simple way and be happy

Posted 07-07-2017 at 07:44 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

In a instruction from 170707 I will show you how easy it is to have several Linux systems installed on one computer together with for example Windows 10. The configuration is so simple a ten year old child can do it.

BACKGROUND
Ubuntu and all Linux systems based on Ubuntu (such as Linux Mint) uses Grub2 as boot manager. Also Debian and most other Linux systems use Grub2. Grub2 works differently from the old Grub Legacy.

Dual-boot Windows & Linux?

**Warning

Before attempting to dual-boot Linux on an existing Windows computer it is essential to backup all personal data to an external drive.

There are two main reasons why people may wish to dual-boot Windows and Linux:

1.) They are familiar with Windows and are perhaps interested in replacing it with Linux. They may be reluctant to ditch Windows completely, in case they do not get along with Linux 100% and so decide to keep a foot in both camps....

Hi all, this is my first entry to this blog. I have been member of LQ for a while, I referred to this whenever I had a doubt regarding , of course, Linux installed in my system. To all the newbies here, if you were windows guy and planned to switch onto Linux( no matter what distro) then I'd prefer having a dual boot in your system. It might degrade performance a little bit but it allows you to switch to your previous buggy OS ;-) ...jokes apart, at some point, as you've just started, you are likely...
