Has anyone had any success with this?
Using a 2013 Haswell Mac Air using the rEFInd boot manager, I’ve managed to dual boot OS X and Ubuntu 13.04 but wireless did not work out of the box. Using the development 13.10 build it was possible to connect to WPA2 but not to an enterprise network.
Dual booting Fedora 19 resulted in the error “no boot device found” and I was unable to get it to boot.
Installing Ubuntu 13.04 or Fedora 19 on their own was successful.
The only reason I have even been looking at dual booting is for the firmware updates that Apple release every so often. Perhaps not critical, but some of them have been for the wireless and battery.
Windows lacks a nice terminal and although Powershell has really made improvements, the frontend is still rather clumsy and basic. There is no ability to resize windows easily (ie drag to resize) or have transparency.
Console 2 is not a replacement, it just adds a nice frontend. The main attractions are the ability to have tabbed sessions (eg one for cmd.exe and one for Powershell), transparency and being resizable.
It is straightforward to set up as described here.
The only changes I made were to use the regular cmd.exe rather than the one for Visual Studio and leaving Ctrl-C free so that I could break out of continuous pings.
MDT2010 differentiates between USB sticks/pendrives and USB harddrives such that there is no proper support for the latter. (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/mdt/thread/736aabea-9c73-4f61-a393-1b4db27d2e1f)
If using a USB stick/pendrive to deploy images and receiving errors like “Setup was unable to create a primary partition…” then check the size of the stick. A 32GB stick will be seen as an external harddrive rather than a stick, so simply use a stick with a smaller capacity, eg 16GB. A bit of an oddity, but annoying all the same.
