Default systemimager and windows partition

Hello,

I would like to use systemimager to make automated Linux installs. on my golden client (and for others clients) I have 1 hdd. It is partitioned in 3.
1- linux
2- windows os or other os
3- unused for the moment

I would like to know if systemimager will keep my windows partition and the boot system (grub) or not during installation/upgrading new clients ?

Thank you.

If you have the windows partition configured in your linux /etc/fstab, I guess systemimager will keep it, otherwise not. But I never tested this.

So I just have to add the windows partition in the fstab and it should be ok.
But systemimager will copy this partition in the image, no ?

I don't know. I've never tried this.
