    Fedora on HD1 and Windows 7 on HD2


    Most of the search results I came across are the opposite of this. I already have Fedora 11 on my primary drive. However, I would like to install Windows 7 on the 2nd drive for work applications.

    When in the Windows 7 setup, I tell it to install on my 2nd drive, but it's saying it is unable to create the partition. I've tried manually creating the partition, formatting the drive, deleting it and trying to install on a fresh disk. Nothing. I am assuming this is because Windows wants to install on the primary drive?

    If so, is there a way around this? I want Fedora to be my primary OS, and I want GRUB as my boot loader that will boot into Windows.

    Remove the linux hdd or disable it in bios till 7 is compleatly installed, might work. Replace the linux hdd and add 7 into grub menu. What type of hdd's IDE/PATA or SATA ?

    Note: I do not have Fedora nor Win 7.
