Will windows 11 installation will detect existing esp(EFI system partition)

Hi, I'm using arch based distro and wanting to get started with Windows 11. I'm attempting to install in uefi mode...disk type is gpt so no need to worry about it. Now the will it detect existing efi partition or will it create one?? (I'm dual booting)

Hi Ruwaid,

It will automatically detect the existing efi partition in normal conditions instead of creating a new one.
