I am about to install Windows 10 on the SR-2, on a GPT formatted drive. Are there any issues with UEFI ? Do I need to update the SR-2 BIOS ?
 
I have another drive with Windows 7 on which I wish to maintain and run both with dual boot.

    The SR-2 does not support UEFI.

    I just reinstalled windows 10 pro on my SR-2 from USB - the new windows 10 seems to have much better driver support, i think everything was workin. Didn’t have to go my Old driverS for SR-2, only thing was my ARECA 1882-24i controller to setup the boot drive.
     
    install on a second drive IMHO but obviously if you can’t then you will have to make do.
     
    good luck
