I have a small question here. I want to install Windows 10 and Antergos on a notebook. Previously I had Win7 and Ubuntu with Grub. I wanted to change Ubuntu to Antergos and I wiped the Ubuntu partition and did realize too late that I killed Grub with it. So I decided to make a fresh start and set up everything new. I now try to have Win10 and Antergos.
I already installed Win10 on a partition and can boot into it. My partition layout looks like this:
\dev\sda1 ntfs SYSTEM /boot/efi 300MB boot
\dev\sda2 ntfs Windows10 156GB
—\dev\sda7 ext4 Antergos / 78GB
—\dev\sda6 swap 4GB
—\dev\sda5 fat32 HP_TOOLS 2GB
(HP_TOOLS is necessary for some diagnostic bios functions)
Now I tried to run the Antergos Installation. But I can’t get the Installer to recognize my \boot\efi. As I already found out is that grub needs a fat32 boot partition to even be installed so I asked myself how could I create a sane boot partition that works. I also found out that SYSTEM must be the right boot partition that also windows uses because I had to disable fastboot to even mount sda1.
So my question in the end of the day is: How do I make a working SYSTEM partition without loosing the bootfiles in it(as this sounds really bad, maybe I’m completely wrong) and will the Antergos Installer then have the option to install grub like in this tutorial(http://itsfoss.com/dual-boot-antergos-windows-uefi/)?
