    Question Problem with dual OS on separate drives using XHD.

    Hi!

    I just wanted to get my worries confirmed about trying to have 2 different OS on a motherboard (Z68XP-UD4) whith activated XHD SSD-drive.

    In my mind it would be trouble as the SSD-cash drive expects the OS it was last used in. And trying to boot the newly installed OS makes it not want to boot.

    Is this true as I think it is?

    I truly would like to have dual OS's as I use 64-bit W7 on my gaming/user-setup along with a separate OS (W7 32-bit/XP-32-bit) that I use for music programs that does not work on 64-bit.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Well, I tried it and... well, it works with dual boot using one W7 32 disk and one W7 64 disk WITHOUT XHD. This with help of Easy BCD.
    But as soon as I enable XHD in BIOS and boot from main disk (W7 64), the computer wants to start check disk.
    It always finds (****) and fixes it but the system works without the check too.

    But dual boot does NOT work with XHD enabled in BIOS!!!!!
    Damned bummer.

    I only use safe XHD caching on the SSD drive.
