I have a late 2015 MBP I’d like to install Antergos on. I’m new to this, so I’ve searched for reliable guides. However, I have found a huge variety of advice, mostly relevant to other models and variations of Arch (e.g. Manjaro or Arch itself). Because these differ, I’m scared to proceed in case I screw something up. (I give the specifics of my model below).
Additionally, I am a little confused about some details:
Is it preferable to dual boot OSX and Linux or go for Linux only? I heard that dual booting is the only way to go if I want future firmware updates. Others have said dual booting is more likely to result in errors.
If I should dual boot, I should partition my HD to give space for the Linux (in this case Antergos) install. If so, is there a good guide for doing this? The last time I partitioned a drive was in 2002 on a Windows machine…
I have seen that I might need to install a different bootloader. I hear a lot of talk about EFI, but not sure what it all means.
So, with that in mind, does anyone know of a good guide I could use for the following MacBook Pro? The result I’d like to achieve is something like in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLH3G8V6zVk
My MacBookPro is the following.
15.4" Retina display

Thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions/explanations of where to turn.
