2 hdd's + 2 o/s, booy up options

  sunny staines 17:18 14 Jul 2006

will having xp on one drive & vista drive on another drive cause any boot up problems if I have just one drive fitted at a time.

I do not want to get stuck with a dual boot up problems when I unistall vista.

None at all AFAIK. I understand that Vista re-writes the boot.ini automatically if there is another OS present at the time of installing (though I'm not sure whether it has to be on the same disk fro this to happen) so your plan sounds like a sensible one.

I hope you have a generous bandwidth limit then! I haven't got a copy yet - I'll download it between 1 and 6am (no cap at night).
