    Dual-boot windows 7 and Elementary OS help needed!


    Okay, here is what I am trying to do. I have 2 hdd (each 1tb) and I want to dual boot both OS's on one hdd and then have my files on the second hdd that can be accessed by either OS. Is there a tutorial out there somewhere?

    I have a general idea of what I need to do, but I don't want to mess anything up so I figured I would ask for clarification. Thanks!

    Most of latest Linux installers detect other installed OSes and Hard disk partitions during installation, setup dual/multi boot by default. Make sure to install Linux in correct Partition ( Drive ), Linux installer will take care of everything else.

    In case you have any confusion, post the partition structure of your Hard disks Boot up from LiveCD of any Linux distro and execute this in Terminal :
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    Post output here.

    * Its small L in fdisk -l.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
