I would like to put a SSD and HDD (both 1TB) into a laptop and have an adapter that changes the DVD drive into a second hard drive bay.
I intend to install Windows 10 and a Linux distro of some sort on one drive and use the other one for my files.
For best performance, which drive should I install in the second bay (that used to have a dvd drive in)?
Which drive should I install the operating systems on and would I be correct in saying that they both need to be formatted as NTFS except the Linux partition which will be ext4? I hope to freely access and edit files from both OS's.
Will GRUB be able to load Windows 10 or do I need to change some Windows settings?
HDD on DVD drive bay for data only. C:\ drive for both OSs. With Windows 10 and a partition for Linux on the same drive, you will need to join a linux distro forum to see how to dual boot especially if you have UEFI.
