I'll have bring windows back onto my laptop. Planing to dual boot it with arch. I have to an ssd and an hdd. I plan to install both on the ssd and continue to use the hdd for data. But I'm a but paranoid.
Would the windows installer dare to overwrite the data on my, without my permission?

    Hey how is it possible?
    The disk is portioned by both OS, hence the partition of one OS is not accessible by other, primarily because of different types of partition!
    U can check it using disk management utility in windows, that Linux taken space is not partitionable
    and it u can't acess it.
    And theoretically it should through error because, OS don't know those volume of memory and it's known volume of memory is full

    @Nawap if that's true, how would a live usb replace a windows partition?

    Could u elaborate ,live usb thingy!
    I don't know abt it,
    And I have actually tried to access files of Linux dual boot, but couldn't , and I thought it because windows is unable to read it because of ext4

    @Nawap The hdd is my data drive. It uses ntfs

    Now Windows installer may have very less chance to override (mostly not) because it will be considered as filled space ,but there is a chance, similarly from other side also.
    But if it's different type of partition ,then it shouldn't

    @Nawap it may not be able to read the files, but it can erase the partition

    I agree in worst circumstances it may try to erase, but erasing is not simple, it will show a additional confirm dailouge box , even ur a administrator/sa

    The age old wisdom was to install windows first

    Why not libvirt/kvm? Win10 runs just fine in it
