dual booting options

Postby bluemint33 on Fri Jan 25, 2013 6:47 am

Hi
Which is the better option, dual boot win 7 and mint on one partitioned hdd or install mint on a 2nd drive

Ive got a 1tb hdd i was going to partition it for a dual boot , when i`ve dual booted before i have always used a 2nd drive but just wondered which option was better
Cheers

I don't know that there is much difference in the two options. But if you have the extra drive I would use it.
