Dual-Booting With Win10

    Unfortunately neither of these will work.

     

    If you leave both installed, it will look to find a device which has 32GB of free space AND a main Windows boot partition. In your case, the drive you're already booting off of doesn't have the free space, while the other SSD doesn't have a main Windows partition.

     

    So if you attempt a dualboot install, it will not complete either way. We no longer recommend dualbooting as we're retiring in in by July.

     

    If you choose a standalone install, note that CloudReady will erase one of the two devices entirely and would not be able to preserve your Windows recovery partition and target only the 100GB of free space - CloudReady Standalone requires an entire device and cannot target a single partition.

    Okay. So if I relocate my recovery partition and let CloudReady keep the entire second disk, I'll still be able to switch via boot menu, right?

    yes, but you'll need to remove the main/first SSD when you run the standalone install in order to guarantee the that your Windows SSD is untouched.

    Y'all should add a option to select which partition/drive to install CR on to
