    Debian Dual Boot and EFI Mode


    In the Debian Installer after you are done partitioning I was asked if I wanted to create an EFI partition. I do have Windows 7 already installed in EFI mode apparently (that was a mess up on my part) so I guess I am asking weather or not I should create a new EFI partition just for Debian and how exactly I would install Debian in EFI mode assuming its different then normal (I've always used BIOS).

    Here is my partition table (from Windows):

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    1. Create a bit-image backup of your disc before you go any further.
    2. Let Debain create an efi image.
    3. Have fun!

    If #2 fubar's your system, then use the disc image to restore the drive to the pre-installation state.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
