CentOS 6.4 + Windows Server 2008 R2 dual boot on EFI systems


  • Hello,

    I am trying to configure dual-boot on a server with Windows Server 2008 R2 & CentOS 6.4. After installing Windows Server in EFI mode, I have installed CentOS 6.4. After rebooting the system simply boots into Windows Server.

    Alternatively I have tried installing both Windows Server and CentOS in legacy mode but after installing Windows, the CentOS is unable to detect the unpartitioned space.

    Any idea,how I can resolve the same?

  • Hi,

    As CentOS is a third party OS, I could only provide some searching result about dual boot with Windows. See:

    Cannot boot windows 7 after installing CentOS 6.2 (it hangs on loading screen, windows logo) CentOS loads fine
