Hi Guys

Any tips for doing a dual boot 8.1 with Yosemite?

I have two SSD's so would run each OS from it's own disc.

Any hints/tips much appreciated :)

Hi. I would like to do a Yosemite and Windows 10 dual boot; would the instructions be the same for uefi on a clover install of Yosemite?

Yes, I would think so.

No, is not! Someone got a solution?
List what you did and what did/did not work.

Installing OS X and Windows UEFI on separate drives is easiest way if using UEFI booting using Clover boot loader.

Installing OS X/Windows dual boot UEFI with Chimera boot loader results in Windows icons not visible because Chimera cannot boot UEFI Windows installation.

I mean, windows + mountain lion is simple, both are MBR partition
Yosemite must install on GPT partition. Here the fun begins.
I do not have UEFI motherboard. Now I boot from USB but sometimes is stuck,
and I work on a solution to make simple bootloader with just two options:
OS X Yosemite and Windows 8.1. (I prefer to use Windows bootloader first)
