My question is simple. I currently have Windows 7 (64-bit) installed on a SSD MBR partition. I also have a 3TB HDD that I am splitting between extra Win-7 storage and what will hopefully be an Ubuntu partition. The catch is that since the HDD is 3TB, it must be formatted as GPT. Furthermore I would like to use the GRUB boot loader to give me the option of booting into Windows or Linux and have it reside on my SSD to take advantage of the speed.
If it matters, I plan to install Ubuntu via USB-flash drive.
Should this be as simple as installing Ubuntu to a partition on my 3TB HDD drive and setting the bootloader device to install to my SSD? I would like to know the probable results before attempting this.
