I have installed a new (to me) 1TB SATA WD Blue SSD & have an existing 1TB Seagate HDD. I’m still puzzling how to set things up. Dumb, I know, but I’m torn between how and what and how much? (I haven’t dual-booted since @SGS wore short pants.)

The only thing that appears reasonable is to split the SSD for both OSs so to retain the SSDs advantages. But that way lies folly. I may decide not to install Windows at all.

Sigh maybe I’ll sleep on it and not worry about it any more tonight. Screw Microft. Linux has been good enough for me for the past few decades.

If you don’t have a specific usage for windows rather than (work / software cannot be used in linux) , then there is no need to use it , just install the system in the SSD and make the HDD as second hard drive and that’s it ." windows felt dirty every time i touch it "


Thanks! The only reason is to stream in 1080p from HBO & Prime. Netflix is OK. My compy is our sole entertainment (no TV).

That said, accelerated Chromium is very close now. It’s only a matter of time. Of course, that will be about when DRM is extended even more. :wink:

I’m going Arch whole-hog. Just copying over data to the HDD. :slight_smile:
