Oh yeh, pull all the other drives when installing or updating Windows in a multiboot environment.
Ew.Couldn't do that since there was just one physical drive.
that a major update will break some of your software you are using every day
Just want to say that these problems can also happen in Windows.it will always pop up on the other screen
I love how the second dip is perfectly placed, even without the glass being there.
I had heard that Windows updates don't do that anymore. I haven't been dual-boot for very long, but so far so good - so far.I don't use (Mint) linux very often but am a little paranoid about the dual boot thing. Windows on one its big updates didn't just take out the mbr, it removed the whole linux partition and extended windows into it. That was not recoverable other than with redoing the partition table and installing linux from scratch.

It won't if you do the Linux install right. First resize the Windows partition within Windows to free up space for your linux install. However some Linux distros in the past assumed they were the only OS and didn't put the bootloader in the right place for multiboot. Fedora, at least when I dual-booted, recognized the Windows install and put the bootloader in the right place so Windows couldn't fuck with it. Grub would boot, allowing OS selection, if you selected Windows, then and only then would the Windows bootloader be called.People are still reporting Windows breaking multiboot, possibly in different ways than it used to.
