I currently have Linux Mint 17 64-bit on my SSD, booted via UEFI, and I'd like to install a copy of Windows 7 on my HDD. I'm only going to use half of the HDD for the windows partition, and the other half will still be mounted on the Linux OS for data storage.
Here's the catch: my Windows cannot boot from UEFI. SO, will I be unable to switch between the OS' without going into my Gigabyte mobos bios every startup and changing between UEFI and Legacy? And even if I can, will this mess up my data storage from Mint on the other partition on the HDD?
