    Default Dual Boot-2HDDS question

    I recently paid the price for having 2 hard drives with there own operating systems, I had been simply attaching the sata cables to the drive i wanted, I suffered a crash as i started one of the drives as it displayed the last page from the other drive before failing to boot,Is it possible to have 2 seperate hard drives and access the drive required via a prog or boot system?

    You should be able to press f12 at the splash screen then choose which hard drive to boot into,if you can't do that you can set which hard drive will be the first boot device in the bios but this method will take longer and you'll keep having to go into the BIOS
