Single laptop. 2 drives (500GB SSD + 2TB HDD).
Has Windows 10 installed as the primary system.
Is split - 500GB are reserved for Ubuntu (at the beginning). The remaining 1500GB are supposed to be used as storage for Windows (uses NTFS).
The goal is to install Ubuntu on that 500GB into HDD without blowing up the current Windows 10. Windows is supposed to be the primary system. I would like to boot into Ubuntu sometimes for development purposes.
If I am going to just install Ubuntu on that 500GB and use SSD as the 1st boot device is it going to ingore Ubuntu completely and load Windows? If so I could just change the BIOS boot order in rare cases when I need Ubuntu and set HDD as the 1st boot device and load Ubuntu.
I want to be sure that doing so will not put GRUB as the default loader for some reason or break things.
