I think it can install the system to the other drive, but it will want to 
write the bootloader on the first drive. Which makes sense.

You confuse that. Windows will name the system partition as C:, but that 
doesn't mean you can install it only on the first partition. If you have 
four primary partitions you can install four versions of Windows.
