I have Linux Mint installed on my system. Now I want to install Windows 8 OS on another drive which is empty, so how can I achieve that.
Does installing Windows over Linux affect GRUB loader?
PS: Don't want to do it the virtual way.
Yep, Windows installation destroys GRUB, but you should be able to boot Linux from CD/DVD after Win8 installation and Linux should be able to recover GRUB easily (this method works for Mint as well) and I believe it might be the simplest solution.
