Hello,

 

I have a Asus Z87-Pro MB (so with a UEFI bios), and I want to create a dual-boot hackintosh. I already have Windows 8.1 installed on a SSD, that I don't want to loose.
My plan is to install 10.9 on a seperate SSD, and then dual-boot it (with Clover I suppose, since it is UEFI). 

 

So is there a way to install 10.9 on this seperate SSD without losing my existing W8.1 installation, and create a dual-boot?

 

Maybe my question is answered somewhere, but I can't seem to find a suitable answer.

 

Thank you!

 

Robbe

UEFI OS won't overwrite each other, you just need to install clover uefi, and done.

Ok, thanks!

 

So if I install Clover (assuming my partitions are in the right format, GPT), it should automatically detect my Windows? That would be ideal!

 

Thank you!
