I'm going to build a new PC and thinking about getting a small 64GB SSD and then a 2TB hard drive. I want to run Hackintosh, Windows 7, and maybe Ubuntu on the SSD but I'm also thinking about FreeBSD and since I'd mainly be using Ubuntu, was wondering if I could install an OS on the 2TB hard drive instead.

The bootloader must be on the primary drive, but most of the operating systems listed have no problem being installed proper on additional drives.
