Development (General) / Re: UEFI Boot AROS
« Last post by paolone on October 22, 2020, 10:25:12 AM »
Just need to decide where its safest to add AROS! :-)


In a vmware player virtual machine. On nowadays hardware, with SSD drives and blazing fast RAM, processors and video cards, AROS would use just a fraction of all this power. So there is no need for a native installation on the bare metal, other than for a quick "oh, it's soooo fast" test.


You'd loose only the 3D hardware acceleration option this way, but recent video cards are unlikely supported by AROS anyway.

I see

But please do share the guide... and if you can point me to any idiot proof guide to how to install Hosted in Ubuntu...   I am grateful for any help I can get!

I can direct you to a reference page if you want to dual boot

I will happily see any info I can (thanks!) but I dont think I will end up using it as I want to use AHCI for the other OSs and dont want to have to change BIOS settings for each OS

I understood in this case the developers are right, I thought you only wanted to install aros in your system and by disabling the secure boot you can do it

I agree with you but at the moment this is the situation, which is not so bad, I use aros every day and I rarely resort to windows and linux

Ah, now I see.. I found my old post...

So I can UEFI boot but not with AHCI (which means MacOS is gonna be VERY unhappy and Linux/Windows will work, just not optimally!) ??

Really? Last time I asked one of the core Devs said "NO" and "no plans"...  I've been spending hours and hours trying to get my Windows 10 on MBR/Legacy (without success for LTSC Win10) just so i could add AROS.

I don't suppose you know if it installs files to the EFI partition properly without screwing existing setups... I have 2 SSDs, one with Mac/Linux (and Clover EFI booting it all) and the other with Win10.  Just need to decide where its safest to add AROS! :-)
