Anyways I decided to dual boot Ubuntu 14.04 and Windows 7 onto my SSD, which I have done successfully (GRUB allows me to choose the OS upon booting)! However I have a slew of questions that I hope this community can answer. Please bear with me :) To introduce myself I am an engineering student, and the reason I chose to do dual booting was to fit the needs of my various tasks.
I want to have all my programs and files stored on the HDD, and have the SSD exclusively for OS and drivers. I want both Ubuntu and Windows to be able to grab files from the hard drive seamlessly.Basically I want to prevent any installations or files from saving to the SSD and redirect them to the HDD.
Do drivers need to be installed on both OS's? I installed the MSI driver on Windows but it works fine on both Windows and Ubuntu. Just curious.
In Windows I can only see the Windows partition in the Explorer however in Ubuntu I can see the Ubuntu partition in addition to Windows one. Why is that?
Any other dual boot tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated
