You’re over thinking the issue. Grub resides in MBR of /dev/sda (the first hard drive). My laptop has an SSD (240GB) /dev/sda, a HDD (500GB) /dev/sdb and a mSata SSD (120GB) /dev/sdc. A Nautilus snapshot is provided for you to see:

When grub boot loader starts up you are given a menu to pick one of your various OS’s to run and the right drive is automatically selected.

In the examples above two of the three drives have both Windows and Linux installed on separate partitions within the drives.

Oh yeah Windows 7 is broken on two of the drives…haha

⇧ Google Chrome will take up my memory to the point where it causes my computer to freeze to a near halt. What can I do to prevent this? My laptop shuts down when I close the lid even though it's set to hibernate  β‡©
