Hi there,

I firstly did choose USF entire disk and it works fine during and after but when I tried USF custom partitioning, I'm having some issues at both installer and upon installation. I tried several options with different results; let me stress I'm using an old 7.1 intel imac with and SDD and tried both MBR & GPT partitions for each options:

If I choose an empty slice of the disk with other empty partitions, it will install sharp but if I add any other OS's thenafter (mac os x or linux) into the other partitions the EFI boot loader /refind or whatever I use; will not boot GhostBSD, not even show it.

If I choose an empty slice of the disk with either Mac OS X and/or Linux in other partitions, it will fail during installer, throwing this:

kern.geom.debugflags: 0 -> 16
kern.geom.label.disk_ident.enable: 0 -> 0

What am I doing wrong?
How can I sort this out? I need to dual boot due to certain compatibility issues with GhostBSD, although I want to sue as my main OS

Many thanks in advance

cheers

GhostBSD with UEFI does not support dual boot yet.

Great, I will stick then to GhostBSD and will give Mac OS & Linux ;-p

Are there any plans to fix this soon? I probably destroyed my OS X and Fedora systems while trying to setup GhostBSD on a separate partition :(

That is so weird! I will have to dig in the code to see what could have happen.
