I was wondering if anyone here would know that if one is dual booting using Grub2 , if this would have any effect on The Windows 10 1809 update?
That's a good question, but we probably won't really know until it is released. It's possible that some computer brands will leave grub intact, while others may allow Windows to again dominate the boot process. But perhaps none will break, or maybe all will break.I was wondering if anyone here would know that if one is dual booting using Grub2 , if this would have any effect on The Windows 10 1809 update?
What is BC?a boot loader is the first software program that runs when a computer starts. It is responsible for loading and transferring control to an operating system kernel software (such as Linux)
The kernel, in turn, initializes the rest of the operating system.
Only ONE OS can be loaded at any one time...
Therefore, NO the fact that grub 2 is used will have no effect on win 10 1809 update
As you are also a member over at BC (I am too...as are many of the members here )........I reckon you should spend more time here ! You will find the guys here WAY more friendly than over 'there'
better still....just install linux on its own and that will take care of that !

I've been 99.9% Linux for a long time now, so I just shake my head and wonder how so many folks can continue to put up with them.https://www.howtogeek.com/365983/windows-10-tries-to-push-firefox-and-chrome-over-the-edge/
M$ thinks they rule the world.
Ask me in 5 days - I run 43 Linux on my Toshiba Satellite but it has no Windows (thank God). On this new Dell Inspiron, Win 10, with 14 Linux so far....if one is dual booting using Grub2 , if this would have any effect on The Windows 10 1809 update?
