Just bought a new MSI Aegis 3 that came pre-installed with Windows 10. Given some of the information from other forum posts, I'm assuming that installing mac os sierra without a clean install of windows 10 will be impossible?

My EFI partition is < 100 MB which I've read that it needs to be > 200 MB. But I've also read that you need to set up the EFI partition through disk utility from a windows installer. Would it be possible to run the windows installer, set the partition and then restart the computer without a full boot of the windows system?

Or do I need to make an image of my computer, run the windows 10 boot all the way, and then reinstall my current setup through the image backup? Then would I be able to run the unibeast bootloader correctly? Currently, I can get to the clover bootloader, but I only get the apple logo followed by the cross-circle logo. Thanks for reading!

Your best option is to install a separate HDD/SSD for Mac OS and leave the Windows drives alone.
