Dual boot windows 7 and arch Linux with seperate hard drives

https://bbs.archlinux.org – It has to do with the physical locations of your drives (i.e. on which SATA ports on the motherboard they are connected). Those reflect /dev/sda, /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, etc., while /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc are partitions. The Beginners' Guide covers this a bit (link).Even if you install Arch on /dev/sdb, you can set the BIOS boot order so that this drive (by model or brand name whatever) boots first.There's no point in partitioning /dev/sda like this guy did. You don't even need a separate boot partition. DSpider https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=28388 2012-09 (HowTos)
