I upgraded my computer (Acer Aspire V3-771G) by adding a SSD. Now I want to make a clean install of Windows 8 on this new SSD. The HDD should be cleaned/formatted and later be used for a Linux OS (probably openSUSE 12.3).
From Windows 7 installation I remember, that it automatically uses 2 HDD, if recognized. One HDD for the OS partition and one for the 100-MB-Bitlocker partition. If there is only one harddisk, the Bitlocker partition was placed on the same harddisk as the OS partition.
The formatted HDD should stay clean after Windows 8 installation. Does anyone know, if Windows 8 also automatically uses 2 HDD for some partitions, if available? If so, what could I do, to avoid that (without disassembling my computer again removing one HDD)?
