Slackware on a former UEFI system
So I discovered (by actually reading the manual) that my motherboard (UEFI by default) does have a legacy BIOS mode. I'm not new to Slackware (used slackware 10-13.37, then Arch linux in September)
I absolutely hate Arch Linux. If I am to install Slackware again, do I need to completely reformat, since I'd used a GUID parition table? (I have /home and a few other partitions I don't have the space to copy off.) Or can I just reformat the root partition and install Slackware to it? (After enabling the legacy BIOS)
Edit: Also, do I have to not boot with framebuffer support using the legacy BIOS? (I know it causes issues with UEFI.)
