 +====== Dual Boot Tips ======
 +
 +EFI Partition schemes can be tricky, but it's really simple if you're installing clean.
 +  - Partition the drive with 3 partitions:
 +    - Windows NTFS
 +    - Linux EXT4
 +    - Storage NTFS
 +  - Install Windows in EFI mode on the first partition. Windows should create 3 partitions in that one space:
 +    - 100MB or so EFI Partition (where the bootloader goes)
 +    - MSR Microsoft System Reserved Partition
 +    - Primary Windows Partition
 +  - Insert Live CD or USB disk
 +  - Select "​Other"​ on install
 +  - Delete the Linux Partition, then re-partition it and mount it as /
 +  - For bootloader, select the EFI partition
 +
 +GRUB Update for Automatic Selection of Last Choice
 +  - **sudo nano /​etc/​default/​grub**
 +  - Add the following lines:
 +  - GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
 +  - GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true  ​
 +  - Close file
 +  - **sudo update-grub**
