    Will router OS overwrite existing OS

    hello All. I have made a MIKROTIK OS disk from the ISO image.

    If I install from this will the existing operating system be over-written ?

    or will it install GRUB so that I choose which OS ?

    When I install UBUNTU over windows it automatically installs Grub which is very good.

    Thanks for any help

    Steve

    Mikrotik will format the entire disk without any optional partition or grub as other linux has.
    So it will replace(remove) all existing data (OS) on your disk.

    No, you can't install GRUB in Mikrotik OS, Mikrotik OS is stand alone Operating System in your Computer (you can't combine Mikrotik with other OS), it's very different with Linux System (where they have a GRUB)...Click here to enlarge
