    Hello aznboi.

    I used to install apps on a different hard drive until I got myself s SDD, so yes you can use a different hard drive to install then to.

    You cannot install Modern UI apps to anything other than the system drive.

    You can install some Desktop applications to other drives, generally by choosing "advanced" or "custom" during the install process.
