As the very first thing I stated,I'm assuming this is an old method as I just went to windows update and installed the Tech Preview build 9926
I appologize for replying late, but with 64gb, thats got to be just under 60gb after formatting. That leaves very little room. I'd say if you plan on running pretty much just windows and maybe another program or two installed, thats it, you'd probably be fine. If you plan on running this with several programs installed, i really dont think theres going to be enough room to have two operating systems installed on such a small capacity drive.Is there enough room on the 64G, I3 surface pro 3 to do a dual boot? I had just plain installed W10TP on my 'broken' SP3 and have now received a replacement as was thinking about dual boot, but I am thinking that with only 64G, I wont have enough space to do it.
Yes, you are correct. There are several ways to fix this.I would like to warn about the software EaseUS Partition Master, it messed up my Recovery partitions totally, or actually it messed up in that way that the Surface Pro didn't see the recovery partitions even though they were there.
This is a known problem with this particular software that it messes up things, it changes the partition ID´s.
It took me about 8 hours before i found a way to fix it by changing the ID´S of the recovery partitions in Diskpart to the correct ID´s.
It is lots of people experiencing this exact problem with this software, there are a couple of guides online written how to fix it, but it took time before i found them and it was a painstaking process to change all the ID´s back to normal.
This problem made it impossible to backup a recovery image and also it couldn't restore the computer, all because it didn't find the recovery partitions.
Try to use Windows built in Disk management, or at least some other software, maybe gparted?
If anybody runs in to this problem then here is the guide that solved it for me:
After installing the latest version, I seem to have lost the OS selection option screen. I now just boot to 8.1, have to go into recovery to select a different operating system (Windows 10). Any idea what happened or how to fix it? Thanks.Bios only shows network/USB/SSD. But the DVD is technically USB, so I don't see why. Personally I have issues 3/4 the time with my USB powered USB DVD drive and the surface pro, so I wouldn't even try.
BUT do note, windows 10 64bit preview alone is over 4gb.
As for boot selection, theres a selection screen right after the surface screen, that pops up before your typical password screen would come.
