I know Metal Gear Solid V has a 1.7GB mandatory install. If I want to install the Play Disc too, through Xbox Home (dashboard), is that possible?

For optimal performance, we recommend only installing the “Install” portion of the disc, and not also installing the “Play” portion of the disc to the Xbox 360 Hard Drive or USB drive via Xbox Home (dashboard). You will be prompted to install the “Install” portion the first time you boot the game.
