I'm looking to dual boot with Windows 8 64-bit and Linux Mint 15 64-bit on my rig. As the title suggests, my setup is on a Sabertooth z77 with two 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSDs, set up with the Intel RAID configuration. I am striping the drives.
I made the mistake of installing Windows first, as I usually do, since I often get problems doing it the other way around (this isn't my first dual boot, but it is my first time with RAID).
According to this website, I should first install Linux, and then Windows. Unfortunately, I think this article was published before Windows 8, and so I want to know if anyone can confirm that this article still holds with Windows 8?
I can't think of any reasons why it shouldn't, but I'll be very upset if I have to wipe my SSDs clean and start anew only to find that it was all for nothing.
If anyone has an alternate method where I don't need to wipe my drives clean, that too would be appreciated.
