View Full Version : [ubuntu] Duak boot desktop & server

March 30th, 2010, 08:24 PM
Hi to all,

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 (desktop version) and it performs flawlessly. Now I want to add a second hard drive to the same box, install Ubuntu 9.10 *server* on it, and use GRUB to control which one boots.

Problem is, I'm a Windows pro but a Linux n00b. Should I disconnect the first hard drive (the one with Ubuntu desktop) before I do the server installation on the second (new) drive? Also, how do I edit GRUB's menu to offer a choice between the 2 OSes?

Any info/guidance would be sincerely welcomed.

I think you can install server on second HDD and install grub on MBR.That way you can choose witch one you want to boot.Maybe somebody with more experience will give you more useful advice.
