Default Laminate flooring on wrapped door ( no baseboard)

Has anyone run into this before? 2 closets with bi-pass doors no baseboard just wrapped with drywall. Surprisingly as much of this stuff as I have put down I never ran i to this before. I am thinking I will undercut the drywall and just slip it under, but I am afraid I will pop the cornerbead if I am not careful! I could wrap the whole opening in wood, but really don't want to if I don't have to.

Bumping this, maybe I wasn't real clear!

So, on a closet door that is either a bi-pass or bi-fold door sometimes they just wrap the opening (jamb) with drywall instead of wrapping it with wood jamb and casing. The baseboard runs the wall inside and outside up to the drywalled jamb area. I have all my baseboard removed and will be laying flooring in the next week or so. This area will not have any base to cover the flooring. The only way I can see to do this is to undercut the drywall, along with the cornerbead. I don't want drywall dust continuously dropping out on the flooring, so I suppose I could run a bead of caulk around that area. Anyone run across this before and how did you handle it?

Does the bead go all the way to the floor? Fein or other oscillating tool on a scrap piece of flooring should give you a perfect cut... but its probably going to come down to IF you can assemble the pieces with enough coverage under the drywall.

I install laminate for a living. If you cant run baseboard around the corner, just leave the gap and fill it with caulk. Normally, if we hit the cornerbead with the jam saw, it will pop it off a few inches up the wall.

Thank you, that was my concern, I appreciate it.
