I’ve bought the MSI Z170A Gaming M5 motherboard for my new Skylake build (planning to set-up my new gear this week-end). As OS, I want to dual-boot to Windows 7 and Arch (Antergos).
At no point did I thought there would be an issue with Linux and this MB, but I found some threads/reviews where people were complaining either about the UEFI booting or about not supported drivers for Killer 2400 network card.
My current set-up is a dual-boot win7 with ubuntu, but it’s a pre UEFI era, so I have no issues with not supported drivers or booting.
In a nutshell, my questions are:

  1. Will I be able to safely dual-boot to win7 and my choice of Linux distro?
  2. Will Antergos detect my Killer 2400 network card out of the box?

P.S. Just as a reminder, I have to install win7 first and then Arch, right?
