    Hey Chris! No worries, I saw you were on line as well! I've been extremely busy between work and home life. As for COVID, meh... It's a political feces storm here in the US. Being in the industry I have a nuanced take on it that falls between both of the fringe groups here. How are you?

    Dual boot Windows 10 & Manjaro 20

    Update @wizardfromoz I was able to get Windows 10 installed and update grub so I can choose either Manjaro or Windows at boot up! As always, thank you!! How are things in Oz? Not getting much international news lately with the US coming apart at the seams! :D

    Dual boot Windows 10 & Manjaro 20

    Internal is my preference. I just want to avoid boot issues. @wizardfromoz has never steered me wrong! As soon as I have 5 extra minutes I’m going to do what he suggested

    Dual boot Windows 10 & Manjaro 20

    Hello Wiz! Long time! Thanks for the advice, I will give that a whirl this week. What are your thoughts on installing windows to an external SSD and just plugging it in when needed and changing the boot order from the BIOS?

    Dual boot Windows 10 & Manjaro 20

    I keep reading that windows should be installed first. I already have Manjaro set up on this system. Could I simply remove the SSD with Manjaro, install the SSD for windows, do the windows install then simply replace the SSD with Manjaro?

    I am using a LG Gram 17 inch. I already upgraded one of the SSD drives to a 1 TB. The second drive bay is empty and what I'd like to do is install a 2nd SSD and make that drive just Windows. Essentially I wanted to keep my Linux separate from Windows but be able to use the same laptop. I am...

    Dual boot Windows 10 & Manjaro 20

    Good day all, Sadly I have had to start using Windows 10 for work purposes and I want to set up a laptop with separate SSD drives, one with Windows and one with Linux. How feasible is this and can anyone point to any tutorials that describe how to do this?

    General Question

    I started with Ubuntu, migrated to Mint then Manjaro. I hopped back to Deb based distros but I am most comfortable with Manjaro to be honest.
