I want to create a dual boot PC with Windows 8.1 and CentOS 7, but I don't want to install both OS on the same drive. I have two SSD's. I want to install Windows on the first SSD and CentOS 7 on the second SSD. Here are my questions:
- Which OS should I install first?
- Can I install both Windows and CentOS 7 in UEFI mode with GPT or should I use a normal MBR install?
- Which OS should contain the bootloader?
- I want the system to ask me if I want to boot to Windows or CentOS. How is this possible?
There are lots of guides about dual booting, but they are all creating separate partitions on the same drive. In my scenario, this doesn't work -- I always ended up by corrupting booting stuff.
