I really appreciate all the work you’ve done creating this article. It’s very well laid out and logical. I am having a problem (of course!). My background is in Windows and Hyper-V so VirtualBox and Mac aren’t that comfortable for me. After click Start, a screen gets flashed, and I get dropped into the UEFI Interactive Shell v2.1 and can’t skip startup.nsh.
When I do everything written in the article will Windows 10 still be available on my PC?
Hi Mike yes
