How To Dual Boot Linux And Windows 10 using OS Prober
Many people think that easy dual-booting is reserved for operating systems like Linux Mint or Ubuntu, where everything is taken care of in the installer tool. The reality is that this setup is easily achievable on nearly any Linux distribution on the market, using a simple tool. You can dual boot Linux and Windows 10 regardless of which Linux distribution you’re running.
The tool that allows users to easily set up a dual-boot on Linux is known as OS Prober. It scans all hard drives and partitions on a PC and looks for operating systems. When it finds them, it will automatically generate a Grub boot entry that then is used to dual-boot.
To get started with this guide, you’ll need to correctly partition your hard drives, so there is room for both operating systems. Partitioning two different operating systems can be a real pain, and isn’t recommended. Instead, if you plan to dual boot Linux and Windows 10, consider using separate hard drives.
By installing Windows 10 and Linux on two different hard drives, you bypass the need for partitioning.
