Dual Booting with Windows 8

Postby nightspades on Sat Mar 09, 2013 12:38 am

Hello, I've been using Mint for a couple months on an older computer but I love it. I want to use it alongside Windows 8 on my main computer. I have a slight problem though, obviously which is why I'm here

I have 2 hard drives, a 128GB SSD and a 750GB HDD, the Windows 8 is on the 128 and the majority of my data is on the HDD, I would like to dual boot these two, but need to know the correct way to go about this, while trying to look this up, I've come across posts with people stating that I need to change BIOS to EFI, etc. And I'm just not really sure where to start. Because what I'd like to do is install mint on 1/3 of my 750GB HDD but I'm not sure if it's possible to do that.

Thanks for any help putting me in the right direction
