Slackware Multiboot: Tricking the installer

Slackware Multiboot: Tricking the installer The slackware installer setup is self-explanatory, except for multiple boot systems. It looks for an EFI boot partition, formatted FAT 32, and will use the first one it finds. This is a problem if you already have another Linux or Windows installed. I don’t like to share /boot partitions between distros and certainly not with Windows. But there’s a workaround: boot your Slackware iso usb mount your / partition to /mnt mkdir /mnt/boot/efi mount your desired /boot partition to /mnt/boot/efi start the installer setup and go through the first steps including selecting the partitions
