I want to clean install Windows 10 and Windows 7 in dual boot configuration on separate hard drives.
I have a 240 GB WD SSD completely for Windows 10 and a 1 TB WD HDD for Windows 7 installation.
I have a MSI B85M-E45 ("https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B85M-E45/Specification") motherboard which supports UEFI and UEFI/Legacy mode.

1).Which OS should I install first, Windows 10 or Windows 7?
2).What should be the partition type, GPT or MBR?
3).What mode should the bios be in, UEFI or Legacy?

Thanks!
PS: I may want to do multi boot with any Linux distribution later down the road.

I would advise you to install windows 7 first for you to be asked if what OS you will boot in the boot process.
I would say you have to use the GPT partition type and a UEFI bios mode.
