I've searched the forum and don't think my specific problem has occurred before.
My computer has two hard drives:
1) The master (drive A) which contains XP and has its MBR on its own drive.
2) The slave (drive B) on which I want to install Linuxmint. However, I don't want the Mint's GRUB to install itself on the MBR of drive A, but on the MBR of drive B. I don't want Mint to touch the XP installation, they must be entirely separate. I will then press F8, as the BIOS boots, to choose which of the two drives I want to boot.
This can be done, as I am successfully doing it with another Linux distro (which will be replaced by Mint).
However, from what I remember from previous Mint installations, I can't choose GRUB to install itself on drive B, it automatically installs on to drive A.
Can anyone please help with a suggestion how I can tell GRUB to use drive B?
