I have recently added a second hard drive (sata2) and want to use it for Linux mint OS . Is this PC capable of being programmed in F10 Utilities to do this? Please someone help me solve this if possible. By the way I am using (sata0) for windows 10 and it's working great. Just can't seem to get the option under Boot order to start sata2. I do not know if this will work or not just asking.. Thanks for any help..

I dual booted Windows 7, Ubuntu and MacOS (hackintosh) years ago and discovered that a cheap used system dedicated for Linux is far superior. Configure the Linux with remote desktop (VNC or Splashtop) and use two monitors on your PC to help control the Linux system.
The following is not for everyone:
Buy a combo ATX motherboard & CPU, add memory (if needed), mount onto a plywood board, attach drive and power supply and connect to network. Once you get OpenSSH and VNC installed you do not need the monitor anymore nor a keyboard or mouse
