Question: where to install the boot loader?
I have a system with 2 HDs, a 400GB and a 160GB.
My Ubuntu installation is on my 400GB HD and currently I have Windows on my 160GB. I'd like to install another clean linux distro (Mint) on my 160GB (i.e. remove Windows), but I'm confused as to where the boot loader goes. Obviously I don't want it to mess up my Ubuntu installation. At the installation window I'm given the following:
/dev/sda /dev/sda1 ext4 /dev/sda6 swap /dev/sda5 swap /dev/sdb /dev/sdb1 ntfs
My question is, I have several options for boot loader installation . So where should I put it? Currently my system boots up and grub loads and gives me to option to choose between ubuntu (default) and optional windows.
My choices are
/dev/sda ATA ST.... (400.1GB) /dev/sda1 Ubuntu /dev/sdb ATA WDC.... (160.0GB) /dev/sdb1 Windows 7 (loader)
What is the difference anyways? could anyone link where this is explained or explain it? Thank you all!
EDIT To be specific, I wanted windows completely gone. Just two Linux distros on separate HDs.
