Hi all, I am looking for a bit of guidance as I am wanting to replace my current ssd on my laptop with a new, larger ssd and am wanting to do a clean install of windows onto the new ssd. The laptop I am using currently has 2 drives, a small ssd of 120GB and an hdd of 900GB.

My question is this:

In replacing the ssd, can I use the hdd for the windows IOS [ISO ?] image for when I reboot and install windows onto the replacement ssd? I would also like to run a dual boot OS with Linux mint. Can I install both operating systems in the same process from the HDD? If so, would anyone be so kind as to run me through what I might have to do for such a process? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Zach
