Lets just say I have 3 hard drives:
c: 500 gig windows 7 with win7 boot loader d: 1tb nothing on it (but I want a Linux os on it... Ubuntu, debian, fedora ect) g: 3tb random stuff
I want Ubuntu and grub on drive D but I want to boot my computer normally and only boot into grub and Ubuntu when I do an advanced startup and select an alternative boot device (the 1tb hard drive). Is this possible with Ubuntu and other Linux distributions? Also do all distributions require you to make a Linux swap partition?
Oh and lastly could I multiboot different distributions such as slackware and archlinux on the D drive and have grub come up with all the os's on the D drive when I boot from it? Even multiboot stuff like older versions of windows and DOS or even hackintosh?
I love OS variety... that's why I made my OSFirstTimer youtube channel ;)
