    Didn't you had this option before, even if not as first bootable drive?
    What drives connected to what ports now? If you onlly have the SSD connected to SATA2 port would it pass the DMI pool data?

    Never seen it before in my life.

    Connected (what shows in HDD boot order):

    (Bootable Add-in Cards - whatever that is)
    Corsair SSD - GSATA2_1
    Seagate HDD - GSATA2_0
    WD HDD - SATA2_?
    WD HDD - IDE

    Just move the add-in cards down to be last.
    You may want to run ATTO on the SSD and HDDs connected to GSATA2 vs. to SATA2 to see which works better.

    wazza300's method didn't work (DMI pool data is a choice in Intel not AMD). I even unplugged all the other HDDs, but the computer won't start to the SSD without the XP drive being plugged in.

    I would like to know where that "Bootable Add-in Cards" came from and how to get rid of it.

    I don't know where it came from, but you can move, change order of the boot disks, so just move it below others, and set the boot order as you need it to be.

    Clive, thanks for your help. Let's see if someone else has a different angle on this.

    Ok, drive order/connection problem solved with EasyBCD and a couple runs of System Repair. Now, presumably I just have to sort out what I want where and change the drive partitions and letters accordingly.

    If you want a simple dual boot just install each OS on seperate drives,then at splash screen press f12 and choose which OS to boot into,I installed xp first,then unplugged drives,plugged in new hdd installed win7 then plugged both drives in giving me xp/win7 on two seperate hdd

    For disc cloning I can recommend acronis true image,works great
