    I have 3 HDDs in my computer, soon to be 4. HDDs 1 and 2 are NTFS, one with Windows and one with just a data partition. Drive 3 I want to put ArchLinux on.

    I don't want to mess with my main Windows partition if at all necessary, except for adding the entry to the Bootloader.

    How do I get Windows Boot Manager to boot drive 3?

    Or do I just have to forceboot that drive from BIOS?

    From my understanding, it is just "personal use only" and not actually limited in any way.
