I have bought a HP Probook x360 11 G1 EE laptop with an EFI boot and Windows preinstalled.
The first problem is that there's no option in the bios to support legacy boot, so I can't do without EFI.
Then, I tried EasyBCD to install linux, but EasyBCD says that it cannot install Linux.
So, I tried Grub2Win, but when "testing to boot" into grub, the system just hangs at boot with a black screen and a blinking cursor on the top left of the screen.
I'm pretty sure that if I just let some live Linux usb modify the master boot record, even Windows will not be able to boot anymore - I don't want to try that.
What can I do to boot Linux? What is this new kind of EFI boot that seems to be locked to Windows only?
