So... I have basically everything ready to go. (Hardware is compatible, Zorin is ready to be installed via USB and I have enough space on my SSD and HDD. I think I just need to make a partition for Zorin, then install it there)
Simply put: I wanna have 2 OS's installed, but I only keep windows so I can play games. I wanna be able to choose which OS to load each time I start my PC.
Zorin allows the choice of installing alongside Windows, BUT I can't seem to choose between all my drives :\ The only option it gives me is to use one of my USB's which has 30GB on it. I wanna install it into it's own partition on my 250GB SSD which also has Windows on it.
Could having 2 OS's on the same drive damage my windows installation or the drive itself?
