Hybrid mode

Postby korda » 29. Nov 2022, 11:14

I have installed Kubuntu 22.40 and Windows 10 natively in dual boot.

I would like to use Kubuntu as host and, whenever I want, load temporarily the pre-exisitng Windows 10 as a guest.

In other words, I would like to boot Windows 10 once natively and afterwards as a guest, according to the current needs whenever occur.

Is it possible? Ia there any tutorial to do this?

Ummmh... I quickly read that discussion, I'll elaborate later...

I understood there are some issues for what concern MBR/GPT partiotions schemas and License Key activation

At this point I am wondering if the complementary procedure could be more easier (ie running Linux vb and native, instead)

It certainly would not encounter the same licensing issues.
