Hi All,

First a happy and healty 2019 :)

Secondly: I have a question about setting up a dual boot with gentoo en windows 10 development enviroment in virtualbox. Before dual booting my lenovo I'm trying to get an understanding on how todo this in virtualbox. I have successfully setup dualboot. When I'm in grub I see gentoo and windows boot options. When booting into gentoo everything works fine. So does windows. But when I've booted into windows and try to boot back into gentoo grub doesn't show and goes directly into windows.

Using the livecd I can see all the files are still in place. I thought I missed something so I've tried this with archlinux and I've got the same result. My guess is the downloaded windows image resets the bootoptions which disables gentoo. Is this correct or is there some other reason? Before I continue dualbooting my lenovo I want to at least have a similar environment setup in virtualbox. Does anybody have a suggestion on how todo this if the downloaded windows breaks my setup?

I've got the windows image from:
https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/virtual-machines

Thanks in advance.

hello and happy new year,
i had similar problems with my dual boot, but in a desktop machine. Since i disable "fast start up" in Windows 10,

everything work just fine.
(i am not sure, if that was the reason of this behavior or if i was lucky).

I keep Windows and Gentoo separate. Windows has C on a 250gb SSD with a "normal" 2tb drive for storage. Gentoo is on a pair on 500gb SSDs with a 4tb "normal" drive for storage. I use UEFI, so when I wish to change between Gentoo and Windows, I just go to the BIOS and change the boot order.

I find this to be much easier than messing with GRUB to load Windows. The only drive they share is the DVD burner.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the reply. I'm going wit the suggestion posted by Muso. I've purchased another hard drive. It's to risky for me to setup a dual boot enviroment using grub or another bootloader.

Kind regards,

J
