    Hi oldfred,
    I sent you a PM to request that this thread be moved to the Programming section of the Forum, since you are a Forum Moderator. I probably should have posted a message here in the first place -- sorry for the mistake. Could you please take care of it?
    Thank you.
    Best regards,

    Hi, you've been helping people a lot on some threads concerning dual boot issues. Here is my quick questions I couldn't find an answer:

    If I have Windows on the HDD, can I have linux "/" on an SSD an a data partition on the HDD?
    Does GRUB2 deal with that easily?

    Hi Fred!

    I saw you clearly saying- "I really do not know Macs" in this thread, yet I know nobody better than you to seek help from (srs5694 doesn't seem very frequent on the forums).

    If possible, please take a look at this thread:

    The OP seems to have the same GPT/Hybrid MBR issue that you have commented on a few times.

    I've asked him for boot info results, but am not sure how to proceed after that.

    Thanks and Best regards
