Hi, first of all i do apologise if this has been asked already. However i urgently need help, as i need to install windows (if its possible) on my hack for work purposes. My setup is quite old but it has been very reliable and does the job for me. It is also still stuck on 10.12.6 due to the nvidia driver issues (setup list below). Is it possible for me to safely install windows(setup dual drive) without messing up my setup?

Thanks.

Hi there.

Yes, it is. Check out @Going Bald 's guide.

Basically, for safety, disconnect the Samsung 850 Pro (Mac) SSD so that nothing can get written to it during the process. The details are in the guide. How you decide to boot into each OS is your choice. I, personally, use the BIOS boot selector instead of Clover/OpenCore etc.

Good luck :thumbup:
