How can I install Linux Mint on a secondary hard drive?

bar November 2, 2011

I have Linux Mint 11 on my master 20GB hard drive. I’ve installed a 40GB hard drive as slave. How do I install Linux Mint from my CD on the slave?

    Thanks Jeff. But you didn't mention the part about the partioning. I had to play around with what I didn't know, UNTIL, I was able to continue with the install...! That was a bit frustrating because I didn't know what it was wanting, and where to find it, nor what to do next..  BUT playing around with this and that if finally responded. But I still don't know what exactly I did, and couldn't repeat it again, if I had to.

      I apologize Barehlohim! Were you able to install it on the slave drive?

    Restart with the Linux Mint CD in the tray and boot from it, proceed to the installation area and chose your slave drive as the install path.
