    I'm trying to install CrunchBang onto a secondary HDD I found today. I'm hoping it is possible to install the distro without having to burn the ISO onto a CD or flash drive. I formatted the HDD in NTFS.

    :confused: And what does it mean? What OS is on that computer? If it's empty you can't install nothing. Flash or CD are required.

    But if it's Windows/Linux machine you can install distro from HDD and keep windows/linux installation at the same time.

    Edit:

    Linux doesn't use ntfs anyway

    Two drives. C: is my main Windows 7 disk and I have a blank D: HDD that I want to install the distro on. NTFS works, it just has problems. ext4 will be used I get to partitioning.
