I have a desktop that has 2 HDD. I want to install Windows and Fedora on different HDD. So that I can run both operating system seperately without going to the details and configuration for dual boot options. My idea is to install windows on one HDD and fedora on another with bootloader of both the operating system on their respective HDD. So that whenever I want to use the specific Operating system, I just go through the BIOS setting and selecting the desired HDD option as a first media to boot. I like to know whether it is possible or not. And if possible then How to install both OS on different HDD.

It is posible to install that way, only think you may need to consider is to make sure that the Windows disk is not the first disk on the BIOS boot order because that will make Fedora to install grub on it. Will advice to disconnect that disk when installing. After that both disk can live and be connected on the machine and if you change you boot order using the bios you can boot with each one individually.

Good Luck
