Dual boot or not to dual boot??

Hi All I am hoping that someone can lead me through a installation. At the moment I am running Windows 8.1 64bit but wish to run Zorin 9 Ultimate64 bit. If I give you a little history perhaps you will understand. I have had Zorin dual booted with W 8.1 but was having difficulties with PC crashing so after shutting down the PC whilst I was on holiday for two weeks on return I attempted to boot my trusty old PC and it refused to fire up, it was old 8 years so to some extent I was not surprised as had run 24/7 crunching for WCG. I have now built a new PC here are the details:-

Processor: AMD FX 3.8 Ghz
RAM: 8 Gig Kingston DDR3 1333MHz single stick
Motherboard: Asus 2048
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT640
C drive: 2 TB desktop SSHD Seagate
D drive: 2 TB Toshiba HD

The question I ask do I dual boot Zorin or do I install Zorin on the D drive and if so how do I do that as the boot drive is the C drive. All help gratefully received.
