Changing from Limited to Unlimited Primaries

Postby Logman » Wed Jul 22, 2020 7:11 am

I was looking for a KB article on how to change ( if possible ) from Limited to Unlimited Primaries on an existing setup, but couldn't find anything.

I currently have Win10, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and BM, and my Win10 partition is way to big so I would like to shrink the Win10 partition and add another OS.

Can this be done easily ?

Since BIBM is on the drive it would be EMBR already. You should be able to go into Settings and unselect the "Limit Primaries" option. Note that you may need to adjust your BIBM boot menu items to load the partitions required for the item (check they're correct before booting them). Once unlimited primaries are used make sure not to use any partitioning tools on the drive that don't support EMBR and unlimited partitions.

Thanks for that Paul,

That sounds easier than I thought it would be.
