How can I create a 2 hard-drive dual boot system with Windows 8 and Win 7 64bit in UEFI secure mode? I want to be able to choose which hard-drive with F12 (like with non-UEFI systems). Will I see both hard-drives and Operating Systems with F12? Will I have to go in and out of Legacy Mode (i.e. will Win 7 require it and Win 8 installed with UEFI not)? What problems can I expect?
I currently am running Windows 7 on one hard drive partition with 87 GB there is 23 GB left on that hard drive. I have a second 160 GB hard drive full of data.
I want to turn this into a Home Server for mostly media files.
Any suggestions on what the best OS is to use and how to partition the hard drives?
I have Ubuntu installed on an SSD, and when I unplug all my other hard drives, it boots up just fine. I have Windows 8 installed on another SSD, plus I have two other SSDs in RAID0 and two other hard drives for back up.
I have Windows Professional installed on the 1st hard drive with the NTFS file system.
I've just installed UBUNTU 11.10 on a second hard drive but didn't setup the dual boot during installation because I was confused that I might by accident, install on the wrong drive. So before the installation of UBUNTU, I dis-connected the 1st hard drive with WindowsXP from the power supply just to be safe.
Hello...I have a computer with several hard drives. The first hard drive (sda) is Windows 8. The second hard drive(sdb)is for Fedora 20 Linux. When I'm running Windows the /boot partition on the second hard drive shows up as a 500MB unformatted drive. I was installing some external hard drives via USB and I accidentally reformatted the Fedora /boot partition from Windows.
i was recently installing linux on my hard drive(sdc)
and it caused problem during grub installation and
i try to use boot-repair. but it doesn't work
now whenever i start my system.
it boots in grub instead of any hard drives.
i have to select bios boot menu shortcut to boot from HDD,
it works properly when i boot into my windows and mac system.
i have 3 hard drives.
Recently I setup a webcam that uses ftp, which uploads the current frame every 0.33 seconds. This creates thousands of images on my hard drives. I have a daily cron job deleting anything past 10 days old, so the space doesn't get out of hand.
I was wondering if it's safer to store all the images on a USB drive attached to my server, so that the hard drives don't have such a load on them.
I installed Ubuntu today for the first time on a Dell desktop running Windows XP sp3.
I opted to install on a second hard drive, following these instructions:
When I reboot my computer, and enter the boot sequence menu in BIOS, there isn't even an entry for my second hard drive.
