Dual boot Debian (stretch) and Windows 10 (UEFI)

I have just assembled and upgraded to a new computer (ct 11 Watt PC with Skylake i5-6500) and chose to go from BIOS/MBR to UEFI/GPT. The computer needs to also run Windows (in this case 10) and so I had googled in vain before for a matching dual-boot howto.

It turned out to be unnecessary, it is straightforward.

  1. Install Windows and leave some space for Linux. (I used rufus to build a UEFI USB install image).
  2. Install Debian. Stretch-Alpha4 di just worked and adds a entry for Windows to the grub menu
  3. Reboot and enter UEFI setup, and select the Debian installation as boot option.
