|Re: [PLUG] Windows 10/UEFI/SecureBoot|
Is all of this complication necessary only when one wants to DUAL BOOT, leaving preinstalled windows in place, or is it still an issue if I want to use the whole drive for linux? The machine I was looking at comes preinstalled with Windows 10; can I just create the partition table from scratch if I don't want anything that's on the drive, like we've always been able to do?
(If I do want to keep the Windows OS around for hardware support/warranty purposes, I could buy myself an SSD and swap out the installed drive before booting the computer.)
