    I have Windows 8.1 installed on a conventional mechanical hard drive. I am wanting to install the Windows Technical Preview (WTP) build 9879 on a 32 GB SSD that is also in my computer. My question is, if I install the Windows Technical Preview on the SSD with Windows 8.1 on the HDD, will they use the same Windows Boot Loader, or since the WTP is installed on a seperate SSD/HDD will it make a completely different Windows Boot Manager for that. If so will this cause problems? My System is a UEFI system, so I know that I would be able to boot back into Windows 8.1 by using the one-time boot menu.

    My next question; if the latter happens, how would I go about putting them together in the same Boot Menu?

    You should be able to swap between the two by entering BIOS on startup and selecting which drive gets first priority.

    No need for a GRUB to get built. I understand the desirability, but I'm not sure of the steps since it is UEFI. Try here: buliding a grub for uefi - Bing
