This question already has an answer here:

So right now I only have 1 SSD in my computer. It is 120 GB Samsung SSD. I boot windows directly from this SSD. I would like to buy another totally separate SSD and install and boot Ubuntu from this one. So 1 PC, 2 drives, and boot windows 7 from 1, and boot Ubuntu from other SSD. Is this possible? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

See my answer to the old question about using 2 HDDs. Using SSD shouldn't be any different. – user68186 Nov 4 '13 at 15:18

Yup. This is exactly what I do on my laptop with two SSDs. One has Ubuntu, the other has Windows 7. I removed the Windows disk when I installed Ubuntu so I could guarantee nothing got written to it during the install.

During bootup I now just pick which drive I want to boot from.
