I'm a college student whose trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 on an entirely separate SSD than the Windows 8.1 SSD that's already installed and working. For absolute clarification, I have two SSD's: one (1) 240GB SSD with windows 8.1 installed and one (1) 120GB SSD that's a completely empty volume. Both are recognized by my UEFI Bios. Since I'm installing Ubuntu on an entirely separate disk, does this change my installation procedure? I'm following this article as a reference: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI
Thank you for the support, I really appreciate it. I'm a computer engineer but have literally no experience with Ubuntu or Linux.
