    Install kali on 2 separate hard drives, 1-ssd for /boot aned a 2tb physical drive

    I've just purchased a new computer that has a 256GB ssd and a 2 TB HDD. I want to install just the bootable portion of the OS on the ssd, while installing the rest of the os on the 2TB drive. I look around the internet, via google, and only found any information on ubuntu pages. They installed /home along with the os on the ssd. So, what I'm looking to do is /boot/ on the ssd and the rest of the file system on the hdd. First, is this possible? Secondly could you point me to a site which has this done? Or help me do this? Thank you

    Laptops don't always allows to choose which drive to install to. I know some laptops won't boot off the HDD, where it will boot just fine from the SSD (when both are present). My guess is that you'll need to do is install the bootloader on the SSD.

    Thank you. I should've said it's a desktop. Installing the boot loader sounds like the place to start

    I guess it can probably be the same on a desktop.
