View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation on secondary hard drive

October 30th, 2012, 06:48 PM

First, assume I know absolutely noting...total noob.

I pulled and old(er) hard drive (let's call it "1TB") out and installed in my new(er) machine. What I would like to do is install Ubuntu server on this older drive and eventually be able to run it as a regular web server alongside but independent of my regular Windows 7 Pro.

I'm not sure if that's possible but if it is, I need to be pointed to specific instructions on installation drive preparation/formatting since 1TB is not empty but contains all OS (Win Vista Home) and other arbitrary files that I don't intend to use at all.

Any help appreciated.

My Specs:

I'm booting with a 120GB SSD
