Dual boot and restore partition
In the good old days with a 32bit/MBR PC with windows preinstalled the restore partition is accessed when some key is hit during boot. If linux is then installed as dual boot the MBR will be overwritten by the boot manager and the restore partition is no longer accessible. How is the situation for 64bit/UEFI, does anyone know? Thanks
