You most certainly can put ME on your second HD but you will need a programme like Boot Magic to allow you the choice of which hard drive you wish to boot to. If however you wish to partition your C drive with a partition large enough to take ME you can put it on there and Windows will then allow you to use dual boot capabilities. Which ever way you choose don't forget that the new partition/drive will need to be setup as a FAT32 file system and formatted before loading the ME Operating System

Happy to be of assistance. Just one small point - the forum etiquette here is that one doesn't e-mail directly to anybody contributing to a thread without permission. Not that I give a stuff personally but others might. If you need any further info re this thread such as how to carry out the format etc. you have my permission to make direct contact via e-mail.
