I have a 2012 Mac Mini (i5) and was thing about putting in another internal hard drive to run Windows 10. Would that be the smartest way to have both OS and Windows on one Mac?

It's the best way. Minimal risk of data loss resulting from either OS corrupting the partition table.

Worse case, you lose one or the other OS, not both, if something goes wrong in either OS.

I've had Mac OS glitches corrupt a boot camp partition before. Now I keep them on isolated drives.

Thanks for responding. Will it be easy to ditch from one os to another?
