Hi all,

I am a little confused after reading several guides about dual booting windows 8 with mountain lion. I am planning to use the ga-z77x-ud5h mobo.
- Am I able to use chimera bootloader with this mobo to select which os I want to boot? Ie// turning on the computer and being presented with the two bubbles representing w8 and ml.
- Has anyone successfully dual booted windows 8 and ml with this board? And would be so kind to share how they did so?

Basically anything regarding dual booting windows 8 with this mobo would be appreciated.

Thanks!

What I don't understand is when it says Windows 8 can't be installed on Uefi. Is not ga-z77x-ud5h a Uefi mobo?

It can be installed UEFI, of course. But Chimera can't boot it because Chimera/Chameleon can only boot a legacy install of Windows.
