I have a 120 Gb SSD drive (
/dev/sda) where Win7 is installed and a second internal drive (
/dev/sdb) that I use for data storage. Both of them have GPT partition tables.
Now, I want to install Ubuntu on the secondary drive and so I partitioned it in this way: EFI (fat32), root (ext4), home (ext4) and Data (NTFS).
I want the installation to be fully separate from Windows: at startup, Windows must load automatically without selecting it by grub menu, instead if I want to use Ubuntu I should simply select it in the bios boot override section.
I made an attempt and I selected
/dev/sdb as boot loader destination, but at the end of the installation I strangely found it in the EFI partion of
/dev/sda drive instead!
That's not what I want of course. For example, if I decide to format the primary drive for some reason, then I must be able to continue to use Ubuntu on the other drive with no problems and vice versa!
