I have 3 drives, a 32 GB SSD running Windows 7, a 500 GB HDD with an NTFS Filesystem in use by Windows, and a blank 60 GB SSD. What I want to do is clone my Windows install (using Clonezilla) and move it to my new 60 GB SSD so that it will have a bit more room to breath, and the install Linux (most likely Mint, but that's probably irrelevant) on the 32 GB.
My question is 3 fold:
- I want to make sure the new Hard drive will not screw up my Windows Drive letters. I have several programs installed into the HDD, and windows will rely on this continuing to be the D: drive and the 60GB SSD becoming the C: drive after the clone
- I want to make Windows the default boot drive, but I want to use Grub (or, more specifically, burg) as the bootloader.
- I would like, if possible, to mount my home folder for Linux as a subdirectory of the D: drive.
I would like to know if these things are possible, and if so, how to do them.
