two hard drives, each with a version of windows-if they were both connected in the same pc, would i need an additional program do let me choose between them on startup, or will the computer know itself?
Or could there be other issues, eg even for the obove to work, must they both be connected as a 'master' etc, or does that not really make a difference? Browsing the web im told for a system to work well one hd must be master and one cd/dvd drive as master, to allow the best performance, but with two hds, regarding jumpers and what should or should not be used as a master, im not sure what to do.
for now, the option on what to boot up from is from XP and ME. both are IDE connections. windows is already installed on both hds. are there any good free boot menu programs- Im assuming i will need to install the program on a master, preferably on xp? im not sure how it works, if the option on what version of windows to startup would appear instantly after startup or not
