My PC has two hard drives. One on XP and the other on Ububtu.Is it possible to have a simple dual boot system to select which operating system to use.If possible how to achieve it as at present I have to manually disconnect one of the hard drives.
I would connect both drives with XP as the first/boot drive. Then reinstall Ubuntu afresh on the 2nd drive. Step-by-step video guide at click here. G
Make sure to choose the correct disk during the Ubuntu install as you don't want to install it on the XP drive! G
if you don't want to reinstall, just use a third party boot manager.
LastChip, thanks for that. I thought that Ubuntu would have to be reinstalled to create the boot/GRUB menu - hence my suggestion.Will something GAG click here do it without having to reinstall Ubuntu? If yes, then it should be a much easier, time-saving method. G
I don't see any problem with your link.From what watchit has described, it seems Ubuntu has installed GRUB (or Lilo) on the first sector of the disk it's installed on. XP will have done likewise.GAG would simply overwrite the XP boot partition, recognise the installed systems and offer a menu.
