Heh, in the notifications email, It appears this has stirred up a lot of discussions on the subject which I hope to bookmark and save because there’s a lot of points covered that are important but which I could never remember in enough detail to be able to use.
None of this, tho has touched on the subject I need information about., which is how to go about multibooting two different partitions of BSD, PC-BSD and TrueOS.
And the options are!!
- Install TrueOS on a partition by itself, as OS #3, where #1 is win-7 and #2 is my old PC-BSD 10.3 ( not in the order of priority) which reside on the first 2 of 4 partitions on a 1TB HDD the third is anarchive and #4 will be the proposed new OS.
The questions then become:
A. Do I use the grub loader because PCBSD has used that to to boot either itself or win-7, thus remaining consistent and hopefully compatible with that loader. OR
B. Do I use the FreeBSD loader (which I prefer) and try to get PC-BSD’s grub loader to recognize it.
A third Possible option arises. Now that the FreeBSD loader now recognizes ZFS and BE’s, Is it possible to replace the old grub loader and still run my PC-BSD 10.3 from the new loader replacing grub all together?
