2 Hard drives 2 O/S

I have 2 hard drives one with XP on and one with Vista. On startup I have to use F8 and select the hard drive. There must be an easier way than that! XP is on 'C' and Vista on 'D'. If I don't select F8 on startup it goes straight in to XP with no choice on Vista. Help please! Thanks.

You need to install a boot manager I suspect.

boot manager only works as above, at boot you have to choose what OS you want. Your Computer is not a Brain reader

the F8 option gives you a choice via the BIOS?
If that's the case , isn't there an option to set a default HDD to boot from?

Thanks pj1664 that seems to work.
