Dual-boot Ubuntu 11.10, Windows 7 on a PC with 2 hard drives


You will find in this article, a step-by-step guide on how to dual-boot Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7 on a computer with two hard drives. If you are looking to dual-boot both operating systems on a computer with a single hard drive, it is recommended that you read how to dual-boot Windows and Ubuntu 11.04. As the title suggests, it was written for Ubuntu 11.04, but because the installation program in Ubuntu 11.10 did not change, the steps still applies to it.

It is taken for granted that the computer that you are going to use already has two internal hard drives with an existing installation of Windows 7 on the first disk and the second hard disk ready for use. Note that you do not have to re-install Windows 7, but nothing stops you from doing it.

The computer used for this review has a 2 TB hard disk and a 500 GB hard disk. The 2 TB disk was used for Windows 7, while the second one was used for installing Ubuntu 11.10. Keep in mind that the size of the hard drives does not really matter. The steps involved in this tutorial are very simple.
