Can we have more then one Efi System Partition on multiple disk?
What I thought was that each disk can have own ESP.
So I can later decide via BIOS which to chose.
But after I try to install mageia after a windows installation fresh on a new disk
I realized that mageia put its boot loader into the windows ESP.

I have read the net about ESP but found nothing clearly saying this is okay but this not.
Maybe this is BIOS specific?
